Singer Papon accused of kissing minor girl on a reality show

Assamese singer Angarag Papon Mahanta, popularly known as Papon has been accused of forcibly kissing a female contestant on the singing reality show Voice India Kids, season 2 in which he judges the show along with Shaan and Himmesh Reshammiya.

The controversy all started when Papon himself posted a Live video of his holi special segment with the contestants on his official Facebook page but little did he expect it would get dragged for his ‘inappropriate’ behaviour.

Supreme Court Lawyer Runa Bhuyan has now slapped a complaint against Papon saying: “I am shocked to see the behaviour of the said singer Angarag Papon Mahanta towards a minor girl where he is seen to be applying colors on a minor girl and inappropriately kissing the said girl. On seeing the video, I am seriously concerned regarding the safety and security of minor girl participating in reality shows across India.” 

A complaint has been filed with the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights for Papon’s ‘inappropriate’ behavior but also a case has been registered at a police station under the POCSO Act.
