He may be 86-years-old, but a governor in India is apparently still frisky --?and it's gotten him into a heap of trouble. Narain Dutt Tiwari resigned after a news station aired a video that supposedly shows him in bed with three women.
After the footage aired on Friday on ABN Andhra Jyothi, Tiwari's office labeled it as a fake. "The news channel report is fabricated, false and malicious to tarnish the image of the governor," read a statement issued by Aryendra Sharma, the governor's aide.
There was an immediate call for his resignation by women's groups. Tiwari gave in the following day, but said he is stepping down for health reasons, not because of his alleged actions.
According to a report on the Telugu news channel, the trouble began when Tiwari promised a woman a mining lease in return for sexual favors. So the woman brought the three women to the octogenarian, and videotaped the encounter. The report says the woman decided to expose the governor when he didn't keep up his end of the bargain.
A court has barred the channel from re-broadcasting the sex tape, agreeing with a petition from Tiwari's aide who said the video was "likely to demean and denigrate his office."
