In a tweet earlier this week, singer Shweta Pandit recalled an encounter she had with Anu Malik when she was 15 years old. "It has taken a lot in me to open up this wound again and speak up against this paedophile and sexual predator," she said.

This isn't the first time Anu Malik has faced such accusations. Singer Sona Mohapatra had also called Malik a "serial predator", a claim he had denied.
