Musician and singer, Papon has issued a statement after he was seen forcing a kiss on a little girl on Facebook live.

The incident, which occurred on Tuesday night, took place backstage of a reality TV show, which involves children singing.

In a lengthy statement, Papon refrained the media “jumping to conclusions” and both families are being “destroyed” in the midst of the controversy.

Supreme Court lawyer Runa Bhuyan filed the complaint with the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights against Papon under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) Act.
