An FIR was held up against most controversial singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya yesterday night at Oshiwara police headquarters following a 34-year old lady blamed him for molesting her. The incident has occurred at Lokhandwala Durga Pandal of which Abhijeet is one of the coordinators.
Victim is identified as an Andheri inhabitant, had gone by the Pandal to watch artist Kailash Kher’s live stage performance. While she was situated at first, crowded public made her abandon the seat and stood at her place to get a clear glance of the show. Lady has lodged a complaint at nearest police station stating that she felt Abhijeet’s hands touching her improperly.
She further expressed that on protesting Abhijeet’s asserted behaviour, the artist lashed out at her freely and requested the ladies volunteers to take her to the Pandal office where she was purportedly threatened by the singer again before he requested that the volunteers toss her out. Police have filed FIR against singer on Abhijeet under Section 354 A (Molestation) 506 and 34 of the IPC.
Abhijeet was reluctant to answer any of the calls and reacted to question through text message upon being asked by one of the journalists., ” No idea !! It’s crowd management. Police and security do their job. Gate crash and nuisance is the main factor. We are also aware of anti Hindu forces/ terrorist threats and sabotage of this Hindu Durga Puja. And that is working well for them.”
