Yet another case of sexual harassment has emerged from Delhi University where a third-year student of B.A. Hindi (Hons) approached the vice-chancellor alleging that a professor asked his students to kiss and hug him.
The third-year student alleged that the professor used to send her lewd messages and made vulgar calls until she confronted him and recorded the incident.
In a letter to VC, she has stated that "When I confronted him in a college classroom, he accepted all the allegations and said he can give an explanation. He even begged me to not to raise the issue as he is a married man having a child," the girl said in the letter. She also sent a Compact Disc (CD) with the recording of the incident to the VC.
I am being constantly threatened by the teacher that I shall be suspended and a case will be filed against me. My career is at stake. Kindly look into the matter," she added. Despite several attempts, the VC's office did not respond for a comment.
Members of the Congress-backed NSUI and DU Students Union (DUSU) staged a protest outside the college on Wednesday demanding immediate suspension of the teacher.
On Feb 14, a 17-year-old girl student of Daulat Ram College has alleged that she was being sexually harassed by a professor following which he was booked.
The victim, a resident of Haryana, was a first-year student of Delhi University. She alleged that the professor would try to touch her inappropriately whenever he found her alone.
An FIR was registered in the matter on January 31 and the professor was arrested on Tuesday.
