MeToo hits Rahul Easwar; activist snubs charge

KOCHI: Activist Rahul Easwar, who has been leading a protest against entry of women in Sabarimala temple, has been accused by an anonymous person of sexually harassing her 15 years ago, but he dismissed the charge as “politically motivated” and said such “fake allegations” would destroy the credibility of the #MeToo campaign.

A Facebook post under the page titled “Inji Pennu” (ginger girl) carried a purported first person account of the experience of the woman, identified as a well known artist, when she was in 12th standard in 2003-04. The victim alleged that Easwar, now President of Ayyappa Darma Sena, misbehaved with her and tried to touch and kiss her when she went to his residence.
