TVF Founder and CEO Arunabh Kumar has been granted interim relief by the Dindoshi Sessions Court.

Kumar, who was booked for molestation, had moved an anticipatory bail application before the court on Friday maintaining that the case against him is false.

On March 12th, a post by a former TVF employee, who referred to herself as the Indian Fowler on medium.com, accused Kumar of sexual harassment. The post went viral and while both TVF and Kumar denied the allegations, more women started speaking out against Kumar.

Soon after the first blog post went viral, TVF issued a statement denying the existence of any person from Muzaffarpur in their company and said, “We take a lot of pride in our team and in making TVF a safe workplace that is equally comfortable for women and men. We will leave no stone unturned to find the author of the article and bring them to severe justice for making such false allegations.”

The incident sparked a debate on women's safety in the corporate world. And after facing flak for the insensitivity in their response, they later issued another statement admitting that they should have handled the response better.

“We did send out an instant response, which may have been a bit too quick & emotional. We recognise that we should have handled that response better,” the statement read.
