On March 12, an anonymous blogger alleged she was sexually harassed by Arunabh Kumar during her two years at the firm. TVF however continues to maintain that there is no past record of any such person in the company, as described in the blog. The viral blog was followed by at least five women making similar allegations. "Please know that we are sincerely looking into each one of them. We are committed to getting to the bottom of these allegations", said TVF.
Meanwhile, an FIR was filed against Founder and CEO Arunabh Kumar following a third-party complaint by lawyer Rizwan Siddique.
The lawyer is not representing any of the women. Last week, Arunabh Kumar, in an exclusive interview to Mumbai Mirror, had denied all allegations against him. "Social media has already declared me an offender, but I am ready to address all the allegations against me. I am open to receiving a police complaint so that I can respond legally as well", he said.
