Veteran actor Jeetendra has recently been acquitted of claims of sexual assault accused by his own cousin. The Himachal Pradesh High Court cited a lack of evidence.

However, having reviewed the report, the Court came to the conclusion that, as the report seems vague and unlikely, this seems to be a false claim due to the cousin’s daughter was rejected from a role after auditioning at the actor’s home production house Balaji Motion Pictures.
“This lends credibility to the contention that the lodging of the FIR was an act of mala fide and a result of the daughter of his cousin having been rejected,” the court explained.
