#MeToo: Defamation cases are being used to silence victims: Nishtha Jain on sexual harassment cases
Defamation cases are being used to silence victims: Nishtha Jain on sexual harassment cases
Tara Writer-director, who has accused Alok Nath of sexual harassment and rape, Friday said she is aware that maybe there is no end to her battle with Nath but it’s the support of people that keeps her going. The director said she came out during the #MeToo movement without thinking about her next step.
“We all know there is no end to this. I cannot bring any evidence, he cannot prove he has not done it and even I cannot prove it he has done it. So what are we fighting for in the courts? Why are we wasting time of the court? There is no law to support what happened 20 years ago, there is no precedence,” she said at a panel discussion on #MeToo organised by Screenwriters Association in partnership with Laadli initiative.
