Singer Papon may be receiving massive support from his large fan-base online, but that is not quite the same when it comes to his industry peers.

The popular singer, who stirred a major controversy by kissing a minor girl during a Holi celebration, was charged with a complaint under the POCSO act, accusing him of harassment and molestation. 

The Holi get-together was being live-streamed on Facebook, which incidentally captured Papon placing a kiss on one of the minor girls - participating in a popular singing competition which he's mentoring/judging. 

As the singer now faces a few charges and complaints from children welfare organizations and lawyers, actress Raveena Tandon has also come forward to slam him for his actions.

Taking to Twitter, the outspoken actress wrote:

"Disgusting! Shameful!Perverse! This man Papon should be arrested ! The girls parents succumbing to pressure ! The explanations given are ridiculous! Haven’t felt such anger and shame to see this happen and some on tv debates actually defending the act !" 

Apart from Raveen Bollywood personalities like Suchita Krishnamurthy, Ashoke Pundit, Farah Khan and a number of other celebs have also criticized the singer for his actions.
