Former Republic TV journalist Deepu Aby Varghese, who was allegedly ordered to harass Shashi Tharoor, met the Congress MP from Kerala to apologize. Shashi Tharoor took to Twitter to appreciate the journalist along with a selfie with the journalist. Another Republic TV journalist named Shweta Kothari had earlier resigned alleging harassment by her bosses at the channel.
Touched by the moral courage of journalist Deepu Aby Varghese who resigned from @republic TV after being ordered to harass me at the Tvm Press Club. He approached me to apologise for his behaviour, as have some former employees of @TimesNow. Decency appreciated. @seegerblues pic.twitter.com/K4CFsPPUNP— Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) 12 January 2018
