TVF CEO Arunabh Kumar unreachable since blog accusing him of harassment went viral, say friends

Two FIRs under non-bailable sections have been registered in Mumbai against TVF CEO Arunabh Kumar accusing him of sexual harassment.

The Mumbai Police have still not been able to locate TVF CEO Arunabh Kumar even after two FIRs were registered against him in Mumbai accusing him of sexual harassment.

However, India Today team managed to locate the house of Arunabh Kumar in Mumbai (address withheld) but he was not at home.

Two FIRs were filed against Arunabh Kumar; one at MIDC police station while the second was registered at Versova Police Station and the TVF CEO has been evading the police since then. Both the cases against him are of sexual harassment.

According to sources, Arunabh Kumar is preparing his legal ground to be prepared against the cases against him. When India Today rang the bell of his house, two people came out identifying themselves as Arunabh Kumar's friends.

Both his friends refused to come on record. Speaking to India Today, one friend said, "Arunabh stays here with us from a long time. During the Holi festival, when the first blog by anonymous girl went viral on internet, he left home and has not come here since then."

Another friend added, "Arunabh used to stay with us, but after the incident he never came home. We even tried to get in touch with him and called on his mobile phone but his phone is not reachable."

With two FIRs against Arunabh Kumar under non-bailable sections, his statement has not been recorded officially as of now.

An anonymous blog post by someone who chose to go by the name Indian Fowler put the Founder and CEO of content creation company The Viral Fever (TVF) Arunabh Kumar in a spot.

Arunabh has been booked under Sections 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty), 354 (A) (punishment for sexual harassment) and 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code.
