Singer Sona Mohapatra on Friday came out strongly against composer Anu Malik’s open letter defending himself against allegations of sexual molestation, which were first levelled against him by Mohapatra in 2018. Thereafter, singers Neha Bhasin and Shweta Pandit had also accused Malik of sexual harassment.
On Thursday evening, Malik in his open letter on social media claimed that he feels “cornered” and “suffocated”. The composer shared that he is going through a “dark phase”, is “traumatised” and wants justice.
Responding to Malik in a long Instagram post, Mohapatra suggested that the composer should go for sex-rehab. Countering Malik’s charge that her allegations were “false and unverified”, the singer said the only truth in the matter was that “many more women” of the music industry had come out to level harassment charges against Malik.
Mohapatra wrote: “The only ‘truths’ that have surfaced after I called you out last year is that many more women have told their stories of sexual harassment, assault experiences with you. @shwetapandit7 told of her trauma of how you scarred her at a young age of 15. Danica D’Souza, Ex Indian Idol Producer told of how you harassed crew & contestants alike.” (IANS)
