Kumar wrote in an open letter,

In the wake of the recent personal attacks, what really breaks me is the blemish on the brand’s true promise. I have therefore taken the decision to step down as the CEO of TVF.

Arunabh Kumar, however, said that he will be available as a mentor for the content team “as they continue to deliver the stories you love us for”.

Dhawal has a sharp business acumen and, together with our leadership team, will keep working tirelessly to scale the TVF to greater heights and bring a renewed ambition and zeal to make TVF the best place to work at, for both women and men.

He was booked under sections 354A (causing sexual harassment) and 509 (insult the modesty of a woman by indecent words, gesture or acts) of the Indian Penal Code.
