A Delhi-based businessman has filed a defamation complaint against actress Esha Gupta after she accused him of sexual misconduct. The Delhi hotelier filed the case under  section 499 and 500 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). The court will hear the matter on August 28.

In his plea, the businessman has sought adequate compensation in his favour. The plea stated, "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 expressing displeasure over the content posted by the accused." 

It further read, "...many members of the public have been expressing doubts on the integrity and moral character of the complainant believing the false and defamatory statements to be true." 

Earlier on July 6, Esha Gupta had accused a hotelier named Rohit Vig of inappropriate behaviour. The actor had shared various posts and tweets of the alleged incident. One of her tweet read as: "If a woman like me can feel violated and unsafe in the county, then idk what girls around feel. Even with two securities around I felt getting raped.. #RohitVig you’re a swine.. he deserves to rot."

In another tweet, she mentioned, ''Men like Rohit vig, are the reason women don’t feel safe any where. You around me with your eyes and stares was enough.''
