Patna Women's College sexual harassment case: Students protest against administration
Patna, Sept 18: Students of Patna Women's College on Friday, Sept 18 staged a protest at Bailey road, Patna, against the male teacher, Sanjay Datta of Department of Mass Communications and college Principal sister Marie Jasie for not supporting the girl, who had charged him of sexual harassment.
Patna Women's College which is known for maintaining strict rules and discipline, grabbed headlines a couple of days before when a girl alleged male teacher on the charges of sexual harassment.
Criticising the administration, a girl from PWC accused the principal and told OneIndia that "she was abusing the parents of the girl today and was not cooperating. Later on she fainted in college after hearing such abusive words by the principal." [Bihar: College Professor booked for sexual harassment]
She also added that "Bachelor of Mass Communication (BMC) Department students were locked up inside college classrooms and they were not allowed to join the protests and to say anything against the college administration."
She also said that " the principal is warning girl and was supporting a pervert teacher who tried to sexually assault his student". [Bihar: Professor quits after sexual harassment charge]
The video provided by girl as an evidence was seized by the principal but audio recording was still with the alleged victim.
"As a woman, rather than showing concern towards the girl, the principal is abusing not only her but also her parents", she further said.
On Thursday, Sept 17, Marie Jassie, the principal of college reportedly said that "He didn't rape you, he just touched you."
Meanwhile, college students who united through Facebook and Whatsapp are protesting against the administration to get justice for the girl and are demanding proper inquiry to be set up into the case.
