Mumbai: Veteran Bollywood actor Jeetendra has been accused of sexual abusing his cousin 47 years ago, according to a complaint filed against him in  Himachal Pradesh.

The said cousin, according to a report , claims that Jeetendra abused her, who was just 18, at a time when Jeetendra was around 28, ten years older.

The incident happened 47 years back, when Jeetendra asked her father for permission to take her to a film shoot, where he allegedly sexually abused her.

However, Jeetendra’s lawyer Advocate Rizwan Siddiquee calls the claims baseless.

Rizwan said, "Foremost my client specifically and categorically denies any such incident. Besides even otherwise such baseless, ridiculous and fabricated claims cannot be entertained by any Court of law or the law enforcement agencies after a span of almost 50 years. The Statute has provided a justice delivery system through the Courts, and the Limitation Act 1963 was specifically enacted to ensure that all genuine complaints are made within a maximum time limit of three years so that a proper investigation is carried out and timely justice is delivered."
