Delhi: Vidya Krishnan, a former health editor at The Hindu, has accused India Today’s Executive Editor Gaurav Sawant of sexual misconduct during an assignment in 2003. Krishnan claimed Sawant “unzipped” his pants and tried “to force her hand towards his penis” during the trip. However, Sawant called the allegations “irresponsible, baseless, and completely false” and said he would take legal action.
