Dr Salil Tewari, dean, student welfare, Pant University said that the issue was raised in October before the vice-chancellor (VC) at the university disciplinary committee meeting by a girl. But there was no written complaint filed by her so no action was taken against the accused.
The other girl students claimed that the professor, who is also the warden of their hostel was allegedly making calls to the girl (who raise the complain) at midnight. Even after she kept disconnecting his phone, he repeatedly called her.
