Chandrakant Kavlekar has said in his complaint to the cyber police that the clip was sent to the WhatsApp group from his phone when he was "nowhere near the phone and fast asleep". He said "some miscreants" had sent a video with obscene content to a WhatsApp group called "Villages of Goa". The video was "intentionally masked in my name with some criminal intention," Mr Kavlekar wrote.

He pointed out that the video was sent to only one of the many groups he is part of. "Also, the time when this message was sent, I was nowhere near the phone and I was fast asleep. There have been many such attempts in the recent history to defame my name and project a wrong image of me in front of the public," he alleged.
