Mumbai: Singer Abhijeet is at the centre of a controversy for hurling abuses on a female journalist after he got involved in a Twitter fight with her and other media persons.

The controversy started after Abjijeet, bizarrely, called the murder of a techie in Chennai, a case of Love Jihad, wrongly suggesting that her attacker was a Muslim.

When the female journalist Swati Chaturvedi and other Twitter users pointed out that he should be arrested for unnecessarily stoking communal hatred, Abhijeet lashed out with choicest abuses calling her "an old woman" in his expletive-filled rant.

Chaturvedi said that the singer’s tweets were "just obscenities and profanities" and she would file an FIR against him.

"(He has been) calling me all sorts of loaded, sexually nasty terms. It all started because he has been tweeting this information in the Chennai case. And I called that out and said that such things can start off riots," Chaturvedi said.

She said Mumbai Police has reached out to her and assured a strong action against Abhijeet.

"I am going to file an FIR and I hope that police will take the required action. I very strongly feel that enough is enough. We as journalists and women have been targeted enough on Twitter. I am tired of these sexual innuendos we all face."

The singer, known for his pro-Hindu stance, is not new such controversies as he has in the past ranted against Pakistani singers and artistes.
