Lasith Malinga 'sexually harassed' a woman in hotel room

Indian woman raises #MeToo charge against Arjuna Ranatunga

Indian woman raises #MeToo charge against Arjuna Ranatunga

The #MeToo movement, which began in the United States more than a year ago in response to accusations of sexual harassment and abuse by powerful men in the entertainment industry, gained traction in India in late September after the actress Tanushree Dutta said prominent actor Nana Patekar behaved inappropriately on the sets of a film they were shooting in 2008.

After an Indian flight attendant had accused former Sri Lanka skipper Arjuna Ranatunga of sexually harassing her, star Islander pacer Lasith Malinga has now also been accused of sexual assault by a singer named Chinmayi Sripaada at a Mumbai hotel.

On Wednesday, Sri Lanka's World Cup-winning captain Ranatunga was accused of sexual harassment by an Indian flight attendant.

However, Sripaada didn't mention her friend's name, who too, did not name any cricketer in her post.

Ranatunga is one of the greatest cricketers to have played for Sri Lanka.

The shocking incident took place during the recently-concluded Indian Premier League (IPL) season. I made a decision to chaperone her, fearing for her safety. "He pushed me in the bed and proceeded to climb onto my face". Notice that I # 8217; am tall and have the same body weight; I could not ... t fight it. I ran into a very famous cricketer from Sri Lanka during the IPL season which stated that my friend was in his room, # 8221; the famous singer # 8217; s.

"My starstruck colleague spotted Indian and Sri Lankan cricketers in the elevator of Hotel Juhu Centaur, Mumbai and chose to meet them in their room for autographs". I closed my eyes and mouth but he used my face.

She alleged that Ranatunga grabbed her by waist, and she kicked his legs to rescue herself. "My discomfort was growing inside of me; I urged her to get back to our room..." Wasting no time, I dashed for the hotel reception a good run on an incline screaming on top of my voice. The victim added that she was rescued by the hotel staff after they knocked on the door of the room.
