A case of sexual harassment has been registered against an assistant professor by a PhD female student for allegedly molesting her, in the much reputed St Stephen’s college, Delhi. She had reported the matter to the college principal, Valson Thampu before, who took no action against the professor. However, the principal reasoned that if she takes some legal action, her completion of PhD would get delayed!

Later the student accompanied by her parents, complained to the college principal once again, to which he said that this issue would be forwarded to Delhi University’s grievance redressal cell and not to the Delhi Police. But since there was no action taken, the student went ahead and filed the complaint.

The student, who is pursuing a PhD in Chemistry has made a seven-page complaint that the professor named Satish Kumar had harassed her for two years. The first time that he tried was in October 2013, but she kept quiet because she feared for her career.

But, he didn’t cease the harassment even after that. The professor continued to harass her by touching her inappropriately or hugging her sometimes. He even threatened to pour sulphuric acid  on her, if she refused to wear a yellow sari for him!!

“An FIR has been registered against the accused professor Satish Kumar under section 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and other relevant sections of the IPC against the accused in connection with the complaint,” a police official said.

No arrest has been made as the investigation is going on but the college principal claims that he didn’t know anything about this scenario.

Looks like, St Stephen’s needs to take some legal action against the accused and bring justice to the victim.
That’s what Ab Dei Gloriam (for the greater Glory Of God) is, right?!
