NUJS committee postpones staff sexual harassment hearing by a month

NUJS Kolkata has postponed today's scheduled first hearing in a staffer’s sexual harassment complaint against another staff member to 20 August.

It is understood that the internal counseling committee constituted to conduct the inquiry granted the accused leave on medical grounds and therefore would not hold the hearing.

The victim - a staff member in the vice chancellor’s office – had alleged in June that she was receiving lewd emails and objectionable proposals from a senior staffer in the registrar’s department for over a year.

NUJS assistant professor Lovely Dasgupta, who yesterday reached at an amicable settlement with 2013 graduate Adreeka Pandey on Pandey’s complaint of physical assault against her, told Legally India earlier today: “It is so traumatic for a complainant [of sexual harrasment] to go through with this, the administration needs to show more sensitivity.”
