As per the same report, T-Series was prompt to take out a statement stating that the complainant was not an employee of the company. In the statement, they mentioned that Krishan Kumar was compelled to file an FIR against the woman as she was continuously threatening him in order to extort money. The woman had threatened Kumar that in case she was refused the amount, she would falsely accuse Krishan's nephew Bhushan and embroil him in a sexual harassment case. The woman has now requested Krishan to withdraw his complaint against her.

Incidentally, in the wake of the #MeToo movement in India, Bhushan Kumar's name had surfaced among the many that had been accused. He was named by a former beauty queen and actress.
