The AIFF is considering taking legal action against Minerva Punjab owner Ranjit Bajaj following the latter’s allegations of sexual harassment against General Secretary Kushal Das.
The All India Football Federation (the “AIFF”) has become aware of statements made by one Mr. Ranjit Bajaj on Twitter, levelling serious allegations of sexual harassment against the General Secretary of the AIFF, Mr. Kushal Das.
All statements and allegations made in this regard are false and fabricated, and made without an iota of evidence in support of the same. Further, no such complaints and/or concerns were received by the Internal Complaints Committee constituted by the AIFF as per the PoSH Act, 2013.
The AIFF follows a strong ethical code of conduct within the organisation, ensuring the protection and wellbeing of all its staff members. The allegations made by Mr. Bajaj are defamatory in nature, causing harm not only to Mr. Das but also to the entire footballing fraternity in India. In consideration of the same, the AIFF has considered it prudent to take appropriate legal action against the concerned individual.
The AIFF will also refer the matter to the Executive Committee, and also to the General Body for appropriate action.
Below is the thread Ranjit Bajaj posted on Twitter which lead to the above sequence of events.
