The Union Home Ministry has received a complaint against a governor of a southern state for alleged sexual misconduct. The matter is being investigated for its veracity. The ministry has not yet commented on the identity of the governor concerned.
According to Times of India report, the complaint is about the governor allegedly seeking sexual favours from women staff at the Raj Bhavan and the matter is being probed, sources said.
Sources told TOI that the Centre has taken a serious view of the allegations and has directed agencies to examine if there's any evidence.
It may be recalled that Meghalaya governor V Shanmuganathan was asked to resign after complaints of a similar nature were received against him in January last year.
More than 100 employees of the Raj Bhavan had complained to the then President Pranab Mukherjee demanding his recall.
