An inspiring model and the runner-up of popular MTV India’s Next Top Model, Season 3 Sabita Karki has suggested young girls who aspire to become a model do little research about the company and the employees of the company before accepting the project. She also said that she had encountered a similar situation in her early modeling days but she avoided them instantly.
This statement my Sabita Karki is in response to a sexual assault survivor who mustered the courage to speak out after 8 years of suffering. The survivor (16 years then) was allegedly blackmailed and raped/ harassed for 6 months by a beauty pageant organizer named Manoj Pandey and several other men.
Nepal police have been informed about the case and further investigation is underway.
