Washed my face many times, says journalist after TN governor pats her on the cheek
On Tuesday evening, Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit was wrapping up a press conference.
He'd been speaking to reporters about recent allegations that a college professor tried to convince women students to take academic and financial assistance from Madurai Kamaraj University officials, in exchange for sexual favours.
As the press meet drew to a close, Lakshmi Subramanian, a journalist, asked him a question.
His response, she said, was to pat her on the cheek - "patronisingly, and without consent."
Subramanian said she washed her face several times.
"Still not able to get rid of it," she wrote in a tweet.
