Chandigarh: A professor and two other employees at the college in Faridabad were suspended over allegations of sexual harassment. The Haryana Women Commission found the internal complaints committee of a government college was inactive, a day after the accused were suspended over allegations of sexual harassment.
The matter came to light only after the complainant recorded her conversation with the laboratory assistant and narrated the incident to the college principal.
According to the report, the complainant had alleged that an assistant professor, a peon and a laboratory assistant would befriend girl students at the time of admission and later they would target those who had to reappear for exams on the pretext of helping them.
As per news agency PTI, the complainant also alleged that they would help in the exams and sought sexual favours for that. Haryana State Commission for Women member Renu Bhatia said that she met the girl at the college today and she gave a detailed account of what she had to face. She said that she had secretly recorded a video-audio conversation with one of the accused. Meanwhile, an FIR has been registered and police would investigate the matter.
Bhatia said that it was found that its Internal Complaints Committee was not active. She also found how the college lacked in taking action, as the girl had approached them nearly a fortnight ago, but it took a few days to take cognisance of her complaint. The college did form a committee, but it took some days, she added.
