Singer Angarag Mahanta, popular as Papon, has decided to step down as a judge on the singing reality show "The Voice India Kids" after a complaint was filed against him for forcefully kissing a minor.
He tweeted that "Since I am in no mental state to fulfill most of my professional obligations, I have decided to step down as a judge on the show till the matter in which I have been falsely implicated is fully resolved and the investigations are over,"
He further added that "I have full faith in the judicial system and eventually the truth will prevail. In the interim, I would appreciate that my privacy is respected,"
After a video in which Papon is seen kissing on the lips of a minor girl contestant of the &TV show became viral online. The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) on Friday issued notice to both the singer and the channel.
