Senior police officer Manoj Sharma, said:
"The Oshiwara police has registered an FIR against Alok Nath for rape on the complaint filed by Vinta Nanda."
After being accused of sexual misconduct, he has been expelled by the Cine And TV Artists Association (CINTAA) for not showing up before the executive committee in October. Previously, he had also refused to respond to a notice sent by the Indian Film And Television Directors Association (IFTDA) in connection with Ms Nanda's allegation that he raped her.
He has also been accused of harassment and sexual misconduct by actresses Sandhya Mridul and Deepika Amin.
It is still not clear whether he will be arrested or not.
