New Delhi: A former woman employee of a web portal ScoopWhoop has lodged a complaint against the co-founder of the website.

The complaint was given to the Delhi Police and an FIR was registered on March 28.

The complaint has been filed against the web portal’s co-founder Suparn Pandey. The complaint also includes two other names for being party to the crime.

According to a senior police officer, the FIR was registered on the basis of the complaint received.

According to police sources, the woman, in her complaint, vividly described how she was harassed for a period of two years from 2015 to 2017. She has mentioned that apart from passing lewd comments, Pandey also touched her objectionably. ​

Under various pretexts, Pandey repeatedly got uncomfortably close, often trying to play with her hair. Pandey was even brazen enough to allegedly send her a lewd video on the company's official Gmail chat, according to Catch News.

Police have invoked IPC sections 354A (sexual harassment, 509 (insulting the modesty of a woman) and 506 (criminal intimidation).

Meanwhile, the Delhi Police have issued a notice to Pandey. Pandey has already moved the court for anticipatory bail in the court. The court has given Delhi police five days to reply.

This comes days after a former woman employee of The Viral Fever (TVF) came forward and spoke about the harassment at workplace.
