Actress Payal Ghosh claimed on Friday that filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has lied before the police while giving his statement, in response to the sexual harassment charges she has levelled against him.
Payal wants lie detector, polygraph test and narco analysis to be performed on the filmmaker against whom she has levelled #metoo charges.
“Mr Kashyap has lied before police in his statement… my Lawyer is moving an application to conduct Narco Analysis, Lie Detector and Polygraph Test of Mr Kashyap to find out the truth. Today application will be filed to the police station, for the interest of Justice,” Payal tweeted from her verified account on Friday, tagging Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and using the hashtag #BetiBachao with her post.

Kashyap appeared before Versova Police on Thursday where he has denied all allegations.
The filmmaker’s lawyer Priyanka Khimani said in a statement: “Mr Kashyap has categorically denied that any such alleged incident ever took place and has also denied all allegations levelled against him.”
On 2 October, Anurag Kashyap’s lawyer Priyanka Khimani issued a statement saying that Kashyap has “denied all wrongdoing in the matter.” On 1 October, Kashyap was summoned to the Versova Police Station for questioning in an alleged rape case filed against him by Payal Ghosh.
The statement reads, “Mr. Kashyap has denied all wrongdoing in the matter and has provided his statement to the police. The material provided by Mr. Kashyap, in support of his statement, demonstrates that the complaint of Ms. Ghosh is an outright lie. Mr. Kashyap has provided documentary proof of the fact that throughout August 2013 he was away in Sri Lanka in connection with the shooting of one of his films. Mr Kashyap has categorically denied that any such alleged incident ever took place and has also denied all allegations levelled against him.”
The statement further mentioned that Kashyap was confident that the “falsity” of the allegations had been exposed with the help of the evidence he provided to the police.
“These sudden, belated allegations of an alleged incident of August 2013 have been widely publicised by the Complainant for the purpose of vilifying Mr Kashyap, irrespective of the outcome of the judicial process. Mr Kashyap is confident that the falsity of the complaint has been exposed, not only by the evidence presented by Mr Kashyap but also the ever-shifting version of events put forth by Ms Ghosh in the media.”
