ScoopWhoop Media put out a statement on Wednesday regarding the alleged case of sexual abuse by the company's co-founder Suparn Pandey against one of its employees. The company said that it has forwarded the complaint to its Internal Complaints Committee and that the investigation is ongoing. "The complaint was forwarded to the Internal Complaints Committee immediately on receipt and is being inquired. The company is adhering to the rules and regulations set forth by the Supreme Court against sexual harassment at workplace and the investigation is ongoing," the statement read. The complainant also accused the two other co-founders of ScoopWhoop --Sattvik Mishra and Sriparna Tikekar--of abetting harassment and attempting to bury the complaint. The Delhi Police has registered a case against Pandey under Section 354 A (sexual harassment), Section 509 (insulting the modesty of a woman), and Section 506 (criminal intimidation), CatchNews reported. The complainant has also accused Pandey of sending her lewd videos and physically violating her on many occasions. The statement came hours after a long-tail news website leaked internal emails, including complaints, between the complainant and the company's directors. The leak followed an internal email that was sent out by the company CEO Sattvik Mishra to ScoopWhoop's employees. Note: The material was picked up by many other websites and is irresponsible and damaging journalism. The published material easily gives out the identity of the complainant. Interestingly, none of the publications vouch for the authenticity of the material published.
