Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: Group of women students of the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) on Thursday leveled allegations of sexual harassment and financial irregularities against a professor of the School of Life Sciences (SLS). However, talking to PTI, the professor, a vocal supporter of the university administration’s compulsory attendance initiative, claimed that he was being targeted for his stand on the issue.

At a press meet held on the campus, the women students of the SLS issued a statement that said, “The professor often makes sexually-colored remarks, open demands for sex and comments on the figure of almost every girl. If a girl objects, he holds a grudge against her.”
