"Don't Know Why CINTAA Did Not Consider This as Sexual Harassment in 2008"

Amit Behl, Sr Joint Secretary CINTAA, has told ANI that the organisation is in the process of building a sub-committee to look into the sexual harassment allegations.

“We agree that Tanushree Dutta’s complaint wasn’t addressed properly in 2008, don’t know why they only looked into the monetary ( financial) aspect of her complaint & not considered her complaint of sexual harassment. We have received a letter from her lawyer to relook into her 2008 complaint but we can’t act on that, she has to file a complaint personally or authorise her lawyer to communicate with us. We are in the process to form a sub-committee to look into sexual allegations.”
