In its official statement, TVF said, "We will leave no stone unturned to find the author of the article and bring them to serve justice for making such false allegations."

However, a few TVF employees rubbished the allegations of sexual harassment against him.

Meanwhile, many have come forward criticising the TVF team for refusing to probe the allegations.

AIB team members Rohan and Tanmay Bhatt also took to Twitter, suggesting the organisation to probe the matter.

Last month, around 50 women had come forward on social media and complained against Kumar. However, none of them filed a complaint with the cops.
