Chinmayi apologizes to UP police

Singer Chinmayi, who had come forward with sexual harassment allegations against veteran lyricist Vairamuthu a couple of months ago, has been making headlines for months in regards to the #MeToo movement, as she has been relentlessly fighting against the sexual predators in and outside the industry while defending the victims.

In one of her recent tweets, Chinmayi posted the headline of a news article from 2017 that claimed that a UP cop had demanded sexual favours from a 37-year-old gang-rape victim before registering FIR, and had captioned her post, “Meanwhile in Uttar Pradesh.” The UP police, who had come across the singer’s tweet, posted in response, “Meanwhile it is not expected of celebrities to post a #FakeNews of 2017 in 2019. Meanwhile, the victim had lodged a fake gang-rape case which the SI had exposed hence revengeful. Meanwhile, the charges against SI were found false after proper investigation & voice sampling test.”

Chinmayi deleted the tweet later and even posted a tweet apologizing for the accidental mistake. “I sincerely apologize for the tweet & appreciate you took the effort to reply. I share such reports (and I will continue to do so) only with the intention of helping people without a voice or influence. I'm deleting the tweet,” her post read.
