Meghnad Bose, a Senior Correspondent at The Quint, has been accused of sexual harassment by his journalism school batchmates. Bose studied at the Asian College of Journalism, ACJ, in Chennai from 2014-2015. At least two women have accused Bose of sexual misconduct and inappropriate behaviour.

The first allegation was made by a journalist on another journalist's behalf as she wanted to remain anonymous. She claims Bose touched her inappropriately. The incident allegedly took place when they were both journalism students at ACJ.

Another journalist alleged that Bose had ‘bullied and harassed’ women. She also gave a detailed account of a personal incident. The incident happened a year and a half ago.
