On Friday evening, the second hearing of the Rs 10 crore defamation case filed by Vikas Bahl against Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane was heard in the Bombay High Court.
In the earlier hearing on Wednesday, Justice SJ Kathawalla, who is presiding over the case, had passed a directive that the girl, who was allegedly sexually harassed by Bahl, should be made a respondent. However, now she has stated that she doesn’t want to file a complaint against the filmmaker, reports DNA India.
She has been quoted saying in her statement: “I have had enough and I am still suffering at the hands of this man even after three years. I do not want to be involved in litigation, so I’ll not file an affidavit. I’ll only put out a statement.” At the same time, her lawyer, Senior Counsel Navroz Seervai told the court that his client stood by the statements she had made against Bahl in the media.
