After the sexual harassment allegations against Anirban Blah surfaced, the talent management company had issued a statement saying Anirban Das Blah has resigned from all his responsibilities and designations at KWAN.
In a recent development, KWAN CEO, Vijay Subramanian issued a new statement saying, "We at KWAN wish to emphatically state that Anirban Das Blah's exit from the company is final and conclusive. We have no sympathy for him. We see this as an opportunity to immunize ourselves from this kind of toxicity in the future. KWAN has never been about one individual, it has always been and will continue to be about the collective".
In a statement released earlier, KWAN stated, “We fully support the #MeToo movement and deprecate and condemn those who have exploited women in any form or manner. As a responsible corporate, we have taken assistance to ensure that we have efficient and appropriate processes to redress any complaint of misconduct in accordance with the law.”
Another statement also reads that 10 partners have taken over the entire stake of Anirban in KWAN to ensure his exit. The decision comes a day after the company asked Anirban Blah to forthwith step aside from his duties.
