Defense

Jeetendra had refuted the sexual assault charges

Soon after the allegations were levelled, the actor's lawyer issued a statement categorically denying any such incident.

"Such baseless, ridiculous and fabricated claims cannot be entertained by any Court of law after a span of almost 50 years. The timing of this baseless complaint seems to be nothing but a miserable effort to disrupt the business activities of my client," it read.
