Times Network responds to sexual harassment complaint

States that the employee was asked to leave due to a restructuring related to performance and Covid-19

Times Network responds to sexual harassment complaint
The Times Network has responded to a complaint registered with the Mumbai Police which booked a senior management official of the media house for alleged sexual harassment. 
In the complaint to the police a former employee of the media house stated that she was asked for sexual favours and was sexually harassed from April 2008 to August 2020 according to a report in the Indian Express.
The Times Network has stated that these allegations are frivolous and come as the past employee's services were terminated due to non-performance and Covid-related restructuring. 
Here's the statement issue by Times Network on its social media channels: 
Frivolous and malicious allegations have been levelled against our management by an ex-employee after termination of her services due to non-performance/covid related restructuring. There have been no complaints of harassment by her against any person during her entire tenure of 12 years. This sudden complaint after her services are terminated is a motivated and malicious action. A complaint has already been lodged by us with the Mumbai Police against her for blackmail and criminal intimidation.
