The #MeToo movement has finally reached India and several personalities from all walks of life have been called out for the harassment they have dished out to several women.

One of the people accused during the movement was T S Sudhir who used to earlier work for NDTV and is currently working with India Today.

The victim took to Twitter to narrate how TS Sudhir used to send her lews messages and if the woman didn’t return the advances, she was humiliated and stories were not aired. She said that her fault was that she yielded because she was so scared. She then said that eventually, she quit her job and never returned to journalism.

Sandhya Menon, who is a journalist herself has been in touch with the victims and have been putting out their stories anonymously. Menon took to Twitter today to assert that Uma Sudhir, TS Sudhir’s wife who is a journalist NDTV currently, was reaching out to the victims and ‘gaslighting’ them. This basically means that she Sudhir has been trying to reach out the victims and playing with them psychologically in order to confuse them, presumably to protect her husband.

After the explanation by Uma Sudhir, Menon told her that she knows the messages exchanged between Sudhir and the victim and that the victim never asserted that there was physical harassment but mental and emotional torture.

Earlier, Sandhya Menon had tweeted that the investigations had begun in this case and the victim had retweeted that tweet. The victim had also tweeted one Karishma who asserted that she knows who the victim is talking about.

Karishma Asoodani asserted that her professors at college did not let her intern with the channel because of the said person, presumably TS Sudhir and his behaviour.
