Relief for Jeetendra, Himachal Pradesh HC stays proceedings in sexual assault case

It’s a major relief for veteran Bollywood actor Jeetendra. The Himachal Pradesh High Court has stayed further proceedings in the sexual assault case registered against him at Women Police Station Shimla by his cousin. The police had registered the case on February 16 under the provisions of “outraging the modesty of a woman” after his cousin filed an online complaint made after 47 years alleging that she was sexually harassed by him in a hotel in Shimla in January 1971. As of now, the court has listed the matter for further hearing on May 23.
