#MeToo hits cricket world; Malinga accused of sexual harassment

The Facebook post in which Arjuna Ranatunga has been accused of sexual harassment

After an Indian flight attendant accused former Sri Lanka captain Arjuna Ranatunga of sexually harassing her, singer Chinmayi Sripaada has now claimed that Lasith Malinga sexually assaulted a woman at a Mumbai hotel.

The flight attendant had described the whole incident on a Facebook post, which is no longer available.

Chinmayi Sripadaa shared a post on her social media account Twitter, She shared a statement written and only took the name of Lasith Malinga.

The #MeToo movement, which began in the United States more than a year ago in response to accusations of sexual harassment by powerful men in the entertainment industry, gained traction in India in late September after the actress Tanushree Dutta said prominent actor Nana Patekar behaved inappropriately on the sets of a film they were shooting in 2008.

Earlier, Arjuna Ranatunga sexually harassed an Indian Air Hostess at Mumbai in a hotel. The post reads, 'I'd like to remain anonymous.

Malinga made his debut for Sri Lanka back in 2004, and was recalled to the ODI set-up for the Asia Cup that concluded in the United Arab Emirates recently, where he played two games for his side. A few years back when I was in Mumbai, I was looking for my friend in a hotel we were staying in. When she went to complain about the incident, she was told, "It is your private matter".

Lasith Malinga, the famous Sri Lankan cricketer, was on Thursday named by an unidentified woman as a predator. My discomfort growing inside of me, I urged her to get back to our room. "He pushed me in the bed and proceeded to climb onto my face". In no position to leave the room, she was finally saved when the hotel staff came in to replenish the bar. I used this opportunity to quickly run into the washroom, wash my face and leave the place. Threatening him of dire consequences, passport cancellation, reporting it to the cops etc., for he is a Sri Lankan misbehaving with an Indian.

"The reception said, "it is your private matter" and that they can't help me", the victim added in her post.
