Expressing his faith in the judicial system, Papon said the video is not intentional and It was just a moment of affection that is being portrayed otherwise.
Singer-composer Papon, who is charged with inappropriately kissing a minor during FB livestream, on Saturday stepped down from his role as judge on the reality show, where the minor is a contestant.
Papon, in a tweet, expressed faith in the judicial system and said “truth will prevail”.
“I am very painfully conscious of the accusations that have been made against me in the last few days. Anyone who knows me would be aware that I am an extremely affectionate and expressive person,” Papon said in a statement.
Papon said it was an accidental move and not a sexual assault.
The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has issued notice to both singer Papon and the said TV entertainment channel after the video came to light.
