MUMBAI: A woman has accused controversial singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya of abusing and molesting her following which an FIR was slapped against him late Thursday night at the Oshiwara police station.

The incident happened at the Lokhandwala Durga Puja pandal of which Abhijeet was one of the organisers and the victim had come there to watch singer Kailash Kher’s performance.

Due to overcrowding she had to leave her seat and stand up to watch the show, which is when she felt Abhijeet touching her inappropriately. After she vociferously objected to his misconduct and asked to be taken to the officials to complaint, the singer threatened her of ‘consequences’.

Meanwhile, an FIR has been lodged against Abhijeet under Section 354 A (Molestation) 506 & 34 of the IPC.
