A video allegedly featuring senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Kirit Somaiya in a compromising position has surfaced online. The emergence of this private video, involving a prominent figure like Kirit Somaiya, has sparked a huge controversy.

A viral video, purportedly of former lawmaker Dr Kirit Somaiya in compromising position, has rocked Maharashtra’s political landscape. The video and news report were telecast by a Marathi news channel.

A purported video, claiming to be of Kirit Somaiya in a ‘compromised position’, went viral after it aired on Monday in News Channels. The viral video triggered sharp reactions from Twitter users and have surfaced on social media, and also led to a protest by Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena faction (UBT) and Sharad Pawar’s Nationalist Congress Party (NCP).

Dismissing the viral video and the allegations, Kirit Somaiya took to Twitter and wrote, “A video clip of me was shown on a news channel. Claimed that I have harrassed many women & many such video clips available & complaints received against Me.

“I have never abused any woman,” Kirit Somaiya said, requesting Maharashtra Deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis to “investigate such allegations and verify the authenticity of videos”.

Marathi news channel ‘Lokshahi’ has claimed possession of the video footage, while they aired the clip by blurring the explicit content and protecting the identity of the woman involved, uncensored clips have surfaced on social media.

In a live show, editor Kamlesh Sutar expressed his channel’s intention was not to invade anyone’s privacy and sought clarification from Somaiya regarding the video’s authenticity and any related complaints.
