TVF CEO Arunabh Kumar to Record His Statement; No FIR Filed Against Him Yet
TVF CEO Arunabh Kumar has been asked to record his statement within this week after multiple women accused him of sexual harassment.
TVF CEO Arunabh Kumar has been asked to record his statement within this week after multiple women accused him of sexual harassment. The issue came into focus when a blog post on medium.com by a blogger called Indian Fowler accused Arunabh of workplace harassment while she was working in TVF.
Kumar who, in a statement, had stated he was open for any investigation on the matter, has been asked to record his statement within six days at the MIDC Police Station in Andheri. This is after a third party complaint was filed by lawyer Rizwan Siddique on March 16.
So far none of the women have filed any compliant. Most have anonymously posted on social media about Kumar’s behavior. The cops have been trying to get in touch with these women, five of whom are anonymous, to come out and file a proper complaint. “No action can be taken unless a complainant comes forward and registers an FIR,” said senior PI Shailesh Pasalwar of MIDC police station to Mumbai Mirror.
Meanwhile TVF team has set up an internal inquiry to deal with the complaints. In their official statement, TVF said, “We are committed to getting to the bottom of these allegations. Many of you have asked so we would like to confirm that yes, we have an ICC Committee set up in each location.”
Amid all the allegations that have surfaced against Kumar, many had accused TVF of not having a proper HR that could look into cases such as these.
