Payal Ghosh has filed a complaint against filmmaker Anurag Kashyap at Mumbai's Oshiwara police station on Tuesday, 22 September for the offences of rape, wrongful restrain, wrongful confinement and outraging the modesty of a woman. Kashyap has been booked under IPC sections 376, 354, 341 and 342.
Ghosh has alleged that Kashyap sexually abused her at the end of 2014.
Anurag Kashyap, through his lawyer, has denied all the allegations.
On 19 September, Payal Ghosh had tweeted about the alleged assault and tagged the Prime Minister's Office, urging them to take action against the director. She wrote, "@anuragkashyap has forced himself on me and extremely badly. @PMOIndia, @narendramodi ji, kindly take action and let the country see the demon behind this creative guy. I am aware that it can harm me and my security is at risk. Pls help!"

Responding to her allegations, Kashyap had tweeted, "It took so long for people to try and silence me, that is something. Well anyway, in the effort of trying to pull me down you lied so much that despite being a woman you dragged several other women along with you. Show some modesty, madam. All I will say is that all your allegations are baseless.”
क्या बात है , इतना समय ले लिया मुझे चुप करवाने की कोशिश में । चलो कोई नहीं ।मुझे चुप कराते कराते इतना झूठ बोल गए की औरत होते हुए दूसरी औरतों को भी संग घसीट लिया। थोड़ी तो मर्यादा रखिए मैडम। बस यही कहूँगा की जो भी आरोप हैं आपके सब बेबुनियाद हैं ।१/४— Anurag Kashyap (@anuragkashyap72) September 19, 2020
