Singer Papon, on Saturday, stepped down as the judge of the music reality show The Voice of India Kids Season 2. Papon yesterday landed in trouble when Supreme Court lawyer Runa Bhayan filed a complaint against him after his video of him kissing a minor girl contestant from the show went viral.

Bollywood celebrities like Raveena Tandon and Farah Khan have slammed Papon for the act with Raveena demanding that Papon should be arrested. Meanwhile, the contestant has released a video on YouTube requesting everybody, just like the father, that the incident should not be blown out of proportion as Papon is a fatherly figure and mentor to the girl and he kissed her out of affection.
