Esha Gupta had accused a Delhi-based businessman by the name of Rohit Vig for “raping her with eyes”. Now, the man has filed a criminal defamation complaint against the actress before Saket Court through senior Advocate Vikas Pahwa under Sections 499 and 500 of the Indian Penal Code.

The court has posted the matter for August 28 for recording pre-summoning evidence of the complainant. Through his complaint, the businessman also sought adequate compensation in his favour. The plea said, "The mental agony caused to the complainant is continuing every day since close friends and colleagues are contacting him and his family on a continuous basis and expressed displeasure over the content posted by the accused.”

The complainant further states that several members from public have been questioning his moral character and believing the defamatory allegations to be true. In the beginning of the month, Esha had taken to social media and shared a number of videos and write-ups, stating how Rohit was making her feel uncomfortable by continuous staring at her while she was out with friends at a lounge.

The actress wrote, "About my previous post, this guy was literally raping me with his eyes..thanks to my security for being more patient than me in this situation..does anyone know him? #deardonna.''

Posting a picture of the businessman on Twitter, Gupta wrote, "the man who thinks staring at a woman all night n making her uncomfortable is ok. He did not touch me or say anything. But throughout stare. Not as a fan, not Cus m an actor, but because m a Woman. Where are we safe? Is being a woman a curse."

While several media personnel tried to get in touch with Rohit, got in touch with a certain Ayushi Mathur who handles his work. She told she would get back to us, and after a day, she called and said, “Rohit has told he is not available to talk.”
