A complaint has been lodged against singer Papon for allegedly forcefully kissing a minor on a reality show – Voice India Kids. Runa Bhayan, a Supreme Court lawyer has filed the complaint against the singer with the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (POCSO). 

According to reports, a video on Papon's Facebook timeline shows him celebrating Holi with the contestants of Voice of India Kids, a show which he judges. He is seen applying gulal to one of the female contestants and then he kisses her, allegedly by force. The girl looks uncomfortable as Papon forcefully tries to kiss her on the cheeks.
