Bollywood star Jeetendra has been booked by Shimla Police after his cousin lodged a complaint accusing him of sexually assaulting her 47 years ago when the actor and she had stayed in a hotel in the town

The woman, who was 18 at that time, had sent an email to Himachal Pradesh Director General of Police SR Mardi in February this year seeking registration of an FIR against the actor. Jeetendra, whose real name is Ravi Kapoor, was 28 then.

Shimla’s Superintendent of Police Umapati Jamwal confirmed the development this morning,  saying “an FIR under section 354 IPC has been registered at Chotta Shimla police station. After her email, we got in touch with the complainant, who later had also sent us a written complaint to support her version”.

The woman will now record her statement before a magistrate. She has also been asked to provide any evidence she may have about her stay in the hotel.

The SP, however, clarified that investigations in the complaint will be carried out as per the old provisions of the section 354 IPC, in keeping with the law prevalent in 1971 when the alleged crime took place, and not the new and amended provisions.
