Panaji: All India Congress Committee General Secretary Digvijay Singh came to the defence of Fabindia management saying the top officials should not be harassed if it is someone else's mischief.
Singh, who is also party's desk in-charge for Goa, posted on Tuesday on the micro-blogging website Twitter, "If some outlet in Goa shifted CCTV camera focus the top management of Fabindia shouldn't be harassed." In another tweet, he praised the ethnic apparel chain for promoting the work of the weavers from rural India. "Fabindia has done an excellent work in promoting Village Industry Products which KVIC couldn't," he tweeted.
The former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister's comments come a day after Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar said the top management (of Fabindia) should not be blamed for the incident. "Fabindia is a reputed company. But I personally feel that it must not be company's fault but mischief played by the staff members. Some womanisers must have done that," Parsekar said.
Crime Branch has summoned Fabindia's Chief Executive Officer Subrata Dutta, Managing Director William Bissel and 11 other employees for questioning on Tuesday.
Last week, HRD Minister Smriti Irani who had visited Fabindia outlet in Candolim for shopping spotted a hidden camera peeping inside the trial room.
Crime branch had arrested four employees in this connection, who were granted bail by the court on Saturday.
