The co-founder of Kwan Entertainment was reportedly stopped by the police from jumping off a bridge in Vashi around 12.30 am. He was reportedly spotted climbing the barricades of the bridge when the police grabbed him and pulled him down.
The police said he looked depressed and in tears.
“He was brought to the police station by the traffic police. We called his family and friends who later came and took him from here,” said senior police officer Anil Deshmukh.
Anirban Blah, 39, was asked to step down by Kwan earlier this week after he was accused of sexual harassment by multiple women on a #MeToo thread on social media.
“The past few days have been very disturbing to everyone in the light of the #MeToo movement and it has pushed us all to take a step back and introspect whether each of us is doing enough to create a healthy and safe environment,” the entertainment and marketing company said in a statement announcing that Blah had been asked to quit.
