Singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya, who has been in the midst of a few controversies this year, was accused of molestation in an FIR that was registered against him at the Oshiwara police station in Mumbai on Thursday night.
According to the woman who filed the complaint, the incident occurred at the Lokhandwala Durga Puja pandal where Abhijeet was one of the organizers, a report in ANI adds.
The woman claimed that she had visited the pandal to watch singer Kailash Kher's performance.
However, the venue was soon overcrowded and she had to leave her seat and stand up to watch the show, which is when she claims that she felt Abhijeet touching her inappropriately.
Reports also suggest that when she objected to his misconduct and said she would complain to the authorities, the singer allegedly threatened her of 'consequences' and asked the volunteers to throw her out.
While Abhijeet has not put out an official response yet, he responded to The Indian Express via a text message that read, "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.(sic)"
