Singer Chinmayi is known for voicing strong opinions on social media. This has landed her into trouble several times.

Now, in a series of tweets, the singer has expressed her concern, about sexual abuse of children - both boys and girls. In one such tweet, she said that she was groped, by an unknown person at an event.


In the comments section, Chinmayi was asked if she had filed a complaint with the police. For which the singer answered, "Lol. Women go through this all the time. It is the problem of the organizers that they didn't arrange for security. Case registered against unknown persons is of no use. I understand the law (sic)."

She urged everyone to stop blaming the victims of sexual assaults, and lend them support instead. She stressed that boys are just as vulnerable as girls are, to sexual abuse.
