NEW DELHI: Congress leader Sharmistha Mukherjee, who is also the daughter of President Pranab Mukherjee, has spoken up about being sexually harassed on Facebook. She has said that a man called Partha Mandal has been harassing her by sending obscene messages on Facebook messenger chat. She said that instead of simply blocking and reporting him, she wanted to expose people like Mandal so that other women don’t become his target.

Ms Mukherjee on her Facebook post said, “This pervert Partha Mandal is sending me dirty sexual messages. My first reaction was to ignore and block him. But then I thought the silence would encourage him to find other victims. Just blocking and reporting is not enough. I strongly feel such people should be publicly exposed and humiliated. I’m posting screenshots of his profile and messages he sent me. I’m also tagging him. Please share this post and tag this rat as a message that these pervert acts will not be taken lightly.”

 

Ms Mukherjee claimed that the person harassing her was completely unknown to her. “The person is completely unknown to me and he sent me dirty sexual messages last (Friday) night,” she said. The Congress leader said she would lodge a complaint with the cyber cell of Delhi Police. “The police might have thousands of such cases with them. I will fight as an ordinary woman and do not require any preferential treatment,” she said.
