Singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya has been accused by a flight attendant of sexually harassing her in 1998. She narrated the details through a post on social media. She shared that Abhijeet was a friend of her roommate. She shared that Abhijeet Bhattacharya twisted her arms, pulled her towards him and screamed in her ear, almost kissing and nibbling her at a hotel in Kolkata. In the wake of the #Metoo campaign many women and men are coming forward and are naming and shaming the accused.

Indian Express reached out to Abhijeet with regards to the allegations levelled against him. He dismissed the allegations and said that he wasn’t even born 20 years ago. Abhijeet has been earlier accused by many women of harassment. In the interaction with Indian Express he said that people coming out now with their stories seek attention.He said, “Somebody told me over the call. I was not born at that time. I have never gone to pubs in my life. You’ll never find me at any page 3 or filmy parties. My name sells. If someone’s benefiting from it, good. Sometimes earning their bread and butter with my name, it’s fine.”

He said that he never attends Page 3 parties and that his name sells and garners attention. “I don’t know against whom should I take action. Why should I give attention to that person? You are giving it importance not me. Most of the people who are coming out right now are dirty, ugly people. Koi mota hai koi patla hai. No one deserves (the attention). Just to grab some attention they are coming out. Most of the fat and ugly girls are blaming and I wasn’t born at that time,” he added.

I support the metoo movement, but I hope some woman don't take advantage of this movement to take revenge or make some fake stories. Telling a lie can happen if they have a grudge or for a ulterior motives. So far I believed all the women who told their stories except the woman who accused lyricist Varun Grover. I read his statement and I don't believe the woman who accused him. Like I said I support the metoo movement, but if it is a lie or you have ulterior motives behind it then what's the point of having metoo movement? We will believe a lot of women, but also there's going to be some who will tell lies because they going to take advantage of this movement. Pv post this

He is obnoxious and appalling. Instead of fat shaming the victim he needs to look at how ridiculous he looks and behaves and why ANYONE would want to sleep with him!

LOL

Abe kum akal ... iske lye hot aue slim ladaki lao fir ye manega isne harrassment kiya hai

He just stooped lower than a snakes belly with this response.. This person should be sent to himalayas and seek enlightenment.. Neurotic mess!

Now is a man who is obnoxious on a large scale to everybody - female and male . I am not one bit surprised by the tone & arrogance of his nasty response.

This guy is disgusting and ganwar. Haraassment is about show of power and patriarchy. I'm 100kg and was groped by my boss.

He’s the worst type of person

He has no shame!

Douchebag. Some of the responses of the accused are so ridiculous, and creepy, the attitude towards women is clear.. and you can be sure they did it.

What an absolutely disgusting man - his comments are appalling and reflects his mysogynistic views towards woman - Times up u disgusting pervert!

This waste of a man should first be kicked into a mental asylum and only then will he sort eligibility to be tried in the court of law for any means of sexual harassment..

Disgusting! He's said a lot of things in the past about other issues too...like kutte ko tarah soyeha toh kutte ki maut marega and stuff. This is quite believable especially given his retort.

I can't believe he said that, what an attitude!
