According to a report by NDTV, Jatin Das has denied the allegations in a statement to PTI.

I am shocked. All kinds of things are happening these days... Some people do things and some people make allegations. I don't know her, I have never met her, and even if I did meet somebody somewhere one doesn't behave like this... It is vulgar.
