Mumbai: A 34-year-old woman from Versova has accused playback singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya of ‘touching her inappropriately’ and ‘abusing and threatening’ her during a concert of singer Kailash Kher during the Durga Puja celebrations.
Mumbai Police have registered a case of molestation against the singer.

The incident apparently took place at 10 pm on October 23 at a Durga Puja pandal in Lokhandwala which the singer co-founded in 1996. The woman was later escorted out of the pandal by lady security guards following which she went to the police station and lodged a complaint. A case of molestation has been registered at the Oshiwara Police Station. However, the cops say that they will record statements of witnesses before taking any action.

Abhijeet has denied the charges and says he only had an argument with the woman since she was blocking everyone’s view and he had asked for her to be seated.

Abhijeet Bhattacharya was the popular voice for Bollywood actors like Shah Rukh Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Akshay Kumar in the 1990s. He continued to sing for films like Dhadkan, Chalte Chalte and Om Shanti Om in the past few years, but his voice has been less heard in films now. His last non-film album was Tere Bina in 2003.
