New Delhi, 13 July: An FIR has been filed against the registrar of Jamia Hamdard after a complaint of sexual harassment was lodged by a female employee of the institution.
“We have received a complaint in this regard and investigations are on,” said Additional Commissioner of Police (South-East) Ajay Chaudhary. According to the FIR, filed at the Ambedkar Nagar police station in south-east Delhi, Registrar Firdous Ahmad Wani has allegedly harassed and tormented the female employee soon after her joining the university in August 2011. “He used to call me in his chamber and indulged in indecent and objectionable behaviour. I protested against his overtures and lodged a complaint with the Vice Chancellor but got no reply from him even after a reminder,” the woman alleged. “Following no response from the Vice Chancellor, I lodged a complaint with the women commission after which Wani started pressurising me to withdraw it, failing which he threatened to terminate my job and ruin my career,” she added. sns
