Girl Student Alleges Sexual Harassment By HOD In Odisha College
Baripada: Tension erupted at Maharaja Purna Chandra (MPC) Autonomous College in the town after a PG girl student alleged sexual harassment by an HOD of the institute.
The agitating students locked up the main gate of the college alleging inaction by the authorities.
The victim alleged that the incident took place on Friday. “He called me to his chamber and touched me inappropriately. He also tried to touch my private part,” alleged the student.
The father of the victim said that they have also reported the matter to the principal of the college. “She narrated her ordeal and I reported the matter to the principal. The principal who is a woman instead of taking any action is trying to hush up the matter,” alleged the father of the girl student.
