After Tara producer and writer Vinta Nanda accused veteran television and film actor Alok Nath, Cine & TV Artistes’ Association (CINTAA) has taken a firm decision against him and has expelled him from the association. After former Tara producer accused him of rape, TV actress Sandhya Mridul also narrated how the ‘Sanskari’ babuji of the television world allegedly tried to force himself on her during an outdoor shoot. And after her, another TV actress Deepika Amin shared her #MeToo story on social media accusing Alok Nath. All this has forced the association to act sternly in the matter and has led out the decision today.
CINTAA released a statement on Twitter revealing the same. The statement was released by the association stating, “In the view of the various allegations of sexual sexual harassment and misconduct against Mr. Alok Nath, after due diligence and consideration, the Exec. Committee of #cintaa has decided to expel him from the Association. @sushant_says @renukashahane @FIA_actors @sagaftra @RichaChadha.”

After CINTAA’s decision, Alok Nath told Pinkvilla, "Toh accha hua... I haven’t heard from them. I can't speak about it. I don't know yet." When asked if he would be in a better position to speak about it once he receives an intimidation about it, he said that he will “think about it”.
Post sexual harassment and rape allegations by Vinta Nanda, Alok Nath neither deny nor accepted the charges and said, "Neither I am denying this nor do I would agree with it. It (rape) must have happened, but someone else would have done it. Well, I do not want to talk much about it as for the matter if it has come out, it will be stretched... We only have to hear to women's stand because they are considered weak."
