Renowned dancer and ex-professor at Chennai academy arrested on sexual harassment charges

| @indiablooms | 24 Apr 2024, 01:05 am

Chennai/IBNS: Former faculty of Chennai's Kalakshetra Foundation Sheejith Krishna was on Tuesday arrested on charges of sexual harassment by former students.

A renowned dancer, Krishna had resigned on his own from Kalakshetra and started his own dance academy.

Krishna's team is yet to respond to the allegations.

The former students, now settled abroad, had moved the Madras High Court, alleging that Krishna had sexually harassed them when they were on campus between 1996 and 2001.

The court had directed the Chennai Police Commissioner to act on the complaint.

Confirming the arrest, a senior police officer told NDTV "The former students allege Sheejith used them".
