Legal hassles for Bips!
The leggy bombshell's harassment story has taken a new turn.india Updated: Sep 06, 2006 11:57 IST
Bipasha Basu had once claimed physical and mental harassment by the event officers when she was in New Jersey for Independence Day Parade on 15th August. But the story has taken a new turn.
Bipasha had alleged that she was humiliated and harassed by the two escorting members from among the organizers all along the way from her hotel to the venue.
When Bipasha reached the venue a good two hours late, she picked up the microphone and made these allegations in front of the 10,000 strong audience gathered for the parade.
When the organizers tried to stop her from speaking, Bipasha asked the audience if she could speak and the crowd supported her. Bipasha however had not pressed charges either against the two individuals or against the organizers - India Business Association.
Now, the organizers who had promised to conduct and inquiry into the case have decided to sue Bipasha Basu for making the false allegations and reneging on the deal. Bipasha had not participated in the parade and left the venue after making the allegations, which she was supposed to.
The organizers are blaming that the event had failed because of Bipasha's lack of professionalism. If the organizers go ahead with their decision, Bipasha could get entangled in legal hassles for no fault of hers. Here is hoping that the sense of propriety prevails and Bips is spared the ordeal.
