The sexual harassment case which was filed against singer and music composer Anu Malik has been reortedly closed. The National Commission for Women has closed the case due to lack of evidence from the complainant. “Responding to a complaint, we wrote to the complainant. She said she was traveling and whenever she returns, she will visit us. We waited for around 45 days. We had also asked for some documents, but after that she never responded. The complainant had informed us that there are more women who have complaints against Anu Malik and we told her that they can also file a complaint with us but none of them have responded yet. This is not a permanent closure of the case. If the complainant comes forward or brings more evidence or submits any kind of document, we can reopen it,” states NCW chairperson Rekha Sharma to the portal.
The report also quoted from the letter: “The Commission is in receipt of your response dated 06/12/2019 in the matter. In view of the above, I am directed to apprise you that the Commission has closed the case due to lack of communication/substantial evidence sought from the complainant.” The singer has been accused of sexual harassment by multiple women who shared their traumatic experience with the singer and composer. In the year 1990 Malik was accused of molestation. He was also forced to step down as judge of Indian Idol on the wake of these allegations.
