Complaint was filed by a research student from the another university in the Capital last October. The alleged incidents happened between 2015 and 2016, when both were pursuing PhD.

The complainant accused the professor, who was appointed in the university in 2017, of “forcibly kissing and groping” her on at least on two occasions. She filed a complaint after she allegedly heard the teacher behaved in a similar manner with other women. The teacher accused of harassment said the report and recommendations of the committee are only one part of the process provided by the university rules.
