New Delhi:

Navi Mumbai Police rescued Anirban Blah, who is the co-founder of celebrity management firm Kwan Entertainment and has been accused by some women in the #MeToo movement, before he could allegedly attempt suicide by jumping off a bridge, police said Friday.

On Tuesday, Blah was asked to “step aside” by the firm, which handles the work of several top Bollywood stars, after he was accused of sexual harassment by four women.

Senior Inspector Anil Deshmukh of Vashi police station said traffic cops spotted Blah on the old Vashi creek bridge at around 11:30 pm on Thursday.
