I respect you people for reacting as soon as this came to your notice (hoping this came to your notice now and not before). It is essential to take responsibility and also to take initial step before investigation and thereby believing and listening to the voices that are raised.— NIKITA SHAH (@shahnikki24) October 4, 2018
