The singer allegedly kissed a girl, who was among the many participants he was mentoring, during a Facebook live event for the show. While smearing color on each other's face, he comes close to a female contestant and kisses her.

A Supreme Court lawyer has also filed a complaint with the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (POSCO) against Papon for forcibly kissing a minor girl on the reality show, The Voice India Kids. According to a Firstpost report, the advocate saw the video on Papon's Facebook timeline in which he is celebrating Holi with the contestants of "Voice of India" kids which he judges. There have been reports that Papon's Lawyer has come forward and said that the video is misleading and that his client had no intention to assault the girl. "Surprisingly, though there are number of minor girls present inside the van, not a single member of the crew is seen to be present inside the van", said the top court lawyer.

Assamese singer Angarag Papon Mahanta - or Papon as he is popularly known - has landed in a controversy after a video of him "kissing" a minor singer during a music reality show went viral on social media. "On seeing the video, I am seriously concerned regarding the safety and security of minor girl participating in reality shows across India", Runa Bhuyan was quoted as saying by India.com.

"In my eyes whatever you have done with the girl was not appropriate Papon". There's something call violation of child rights. "You can not take it for granted", promising Assamese filmmaker Reema Borah writes on Facebook. "You CAN NOT take it forgranted".
