Author Harnidh Kaur, in a Twitter post, shared the screenshots which talk about the ordeal of the victim inflicted by Johri. She tweeted, ” had emails sent about a BUNCH of head honchos in media. survivor has asked to not put out all the names. Rahul Johari, your #timesup #metoo”

The victim’s account, as seen in the screenshots says,” Rahul Johri: Currently the CEO of BCCI – Ex Discovery Channel. Rahul was an ex-colleague. Through the times of partying at Raj’s house, then building a successful media business, and then wading through other channels – Rahul kept in touch with me. He would ask – how are you, and then- let’s do coffee…It was difficult to say no to him as he was very persistent and I could not tell him that it was very boring for me to meet him.”

She wrote, “Till date I have borne the burden of this sordid incident, blaming myself for this – I have wondered if I had showed I was needy, I don’t think so – but it’s all hazy and confused in my head. I have cursed myself for bringing it upon myself. For years, I have told myself – that was so cheap of me – but the truth is – it was so sudden and so manipulated that I had no chance at even knowing what the hell this was.”

Before taking up the job of the CEO in the BCCI, Johri wore the hat of the Executive Vice President and General Manager-South Asia for Discovery Networks Asia Pacific.
