AIB comedian Utsav accused of sending sexually-explicit messages to minors
While Nana Patekar's sexual harassment story is still doing rounds, another similar story has surfaced. AIB comedian Utsav Chakraborty has been accused of sending sexually explicit messages to minor girls on social media. Chakraborty recently condemned a group of Indian men's obscene behavior on a cruise on Twitter, but his response backfired when a user started a thread revealing his sexual misconduct towards women.
Twitter user calls Chakraborty a 'vile man'
The Twitter user, Mahima Kukreja, who started the thread, first talked about the sexual abuse faced by women at the hands of male comedians. Calling Chakraborty a "vile man," she then asked him how many girls has he harassed. She also said that her message was for a young girl she knew, who had been sexually harassed by Chakraborty.

Chakraborty asked a drunk minor girl to send nudes
Kukreja then revealed a plethora of messages by many girls who narrated their ordeal of receiving sexually explicit messages from Chakraborty. Mind you, most of them were minors. According to one of the messages shared by Kukreja, Chakraborty had once asked a minor girl to send a topless picture on Snapchat, when she was in a drunk state.

AIB condemns Chakraborty's behavior, releases open letter
The disgusting conduct of Chakraborty didn't go unnoticed. Chakraborty, who is often seen in All India Bakchod (AIB) videos, is facing an extreme backlash from the latter. AIB, which has produced videos like 'AIB: Harassment through the Ages', has also released an open letter condemning Chakraborty's behavior. AIB comedians, including Kaneez Surka, have slammed their former colleague, and have shown immense support towards Kukreja.

But Chakraborty feels he has nothing to defend himself for
As the ordeals of Chakraborty's deeds were boiling up, he decided to reply. Like all others, Chakraborty also feels he has nothing to defend himself for. In a dramatic note, Chakraborty has changed his Twitter description to "I don't know what I am anymore".

India's Me Too: Who is next?
Chakraborty's vile act is another reminder that sexual harassers are hidden behind the innocent or in this case the "funny" faces. If not physically, they sure find other means to sexually harass women, thanks to technology here. While Chakraborty boards the ship with Nana Patekar and millions of stories have to still come out, we wonder which name will come up next.
