The Himachal Pradesh high court stayed probe in the molestation case registered against veteran Bollywood actor Jeetendra.
Jeetendra filed a plea in the HC seeking stay on the probe initiated after an FIR was registered against him last month. Justice Ajay Mohan Goel, while hearing the petition, stayed further probe on this matter.
The 75-year-old actor was booked by Shimla police on charges of molestation on his cousin’s complaint. The case has been filed under Section 354 of the IPC that entails maximum sentence of two-year jail.
The woman filed a two-page complaint on February 7, alleging that she was molested by Jeetendra in 1971 in a Shimla hotel when she was an 18-year-old.
