- In a recent mail written to his previous manager after the SC's landmark order, Gaurav Probir Pramanik cited a 2015 incident where the manager concerned, during an address in a training room, had allegedly made "sweeping generalisation and stereotyping of someone's sexuality". Pramanik accused the manager of making "mocking judgements" on how his purported "effeminate" nature had affected his work. He further alleged that the manager made "a mockery out of a religious minority and a sexual minority" despite being a leader at a company that prides itself for inclusion and diversity.
