Three women of the company took to social media to expose Bajwa claiming that he had been harassing him, proving that he made them 'uncomfortable and overpowered'.
I mean, this is the most recent convo I have after which I kind of gave up and couldn’t make any more excuses so just stopped replying and blocked him. I felt uncomfortable and overpowered by a man twice my age. We bumped into each other once or twice in public spaces/social e— m (@antipastiii) April 11, 2018
One of the girls, Mehravar Ali tweeted: "I mean, this is the most recent convo I have after which I kind of gave up and couldn’t make any more excuses so just stopped replying and blocked him.

Her thread continues:
Events, he graced me with unwelcomed hugs. I shut up about it for the longest but I guess the time is right. I have no personal vendetta because I wasn’t stupid enough to meet him alone despite him asking me a billion times. I just don’t want him to keep preying on young girls— m (@antipastiii) April 11, 2018
Under any false pretense and take advantage of them. It could be as trivial/important as asking for pictures you’re not willing to send. Attaching screenshots. Have confided in people over the years who can confirm his creepy behavior. Stop glorifying abusers/harrassers pic.twitter.com/qhudhTgwZx— m (@antipastiii) April 11, 2018
Another girl replied to the thread saying that he begged her not to expose him for the sake of his daughter:
Another woman stated that she is sure there are others being harassed by Bajwa as well.
She shared, “Bajwa used to force me to meet him. He would make plans that he’d pick me up from college and take me to his office.” She eventually blocked him, after which Bajwa contacted her on Instagram and requested her not to expose him “for the sake of his daughter and wife.”
