In March, CEO of web entertainment firm, ‘The Viral Fever', Arunabh Kumar, was accused of sexual harassment by a former employee. A lot of chaos followed ever since this piece of news broke out.
A case was filed in his name by Mumbai Police. He was booked under sections 354A (causing sexual harassment) and 509 (insult the modesty of a woman by indecent words, gesture or acts) of Indian Penal Code.
Today, he stepped down as the CEO and announced this on Twitter.
“The last few months have been the most challenging months of my life and I would like to thank my friends and family for their unwavering support,” said Arunabh.
Dhawal Gusain will take over as the new CEO of the company. "Dhawal has a sharp business acumen and, together with our leadership team, will keep working tirelessly to scale TVF to greater heights and bring a renewed ambition and zeal to make TVF the best place to work at, for both women and men," he added.
Arunabh Kumar started TVF In 2011 and his idea behind the launch of the network was to reach out to the younger generation who seldom watch the television to either pass time or for entertainment.
