Last week, journalist Sandhya Menon in a Twitter thread accused Sreenivas of sexually harassing her in 2008. She said that after a trial print run of the Bangalore Mirror,

“Late at night, he offered to drop a few of us. I was living the farthest, so I was dropped last. I get to my house; we’re chatting. He lays his hand on my thigh and goes, ‘my wife and I have grown apart. She doesn’t understand me.”

In a statement on Twitter on 5 October, Sreenivas said, “The Times of India has said its committee would investigate the charge against sexual harassment. A highly empowered committee headed by a senior woman under this policy and the law is in place to investigate and address all allegations. I submit myself to the investigation.”

It’s a shame how this count is increasing every day. Women’s are speaking out. All started with Tanushree DuttaAIB came, Utsav ChakrabortyAnurag Verma from HuffPost India, also Jeeveshu AhluwaliaRajat KapoorAlok NathGaurang Doshi from Bollywood with Vairamuthu the Tamil lyricist as well. MJ Akbar is also accused by several women’s. It’s actually difficult to recall all the names as these are coming thick and fast.
