Delhi Police register case against JNU student for ‘molesting’ 3rd year female colleague


“A case has been registered U/S 354A/509 IPC at PS Vasantkunj North following a complaint of molestation from a JNU 3rd yr student. Accused, who is her known college mate has joined the investigation. Further probe is on,” the Delhi Police said.

The police said that the accused, whose identity is not known, is believed to be a member of the All India Students Association (AISA).

According to news agency PTI, the AISA had earlier said that it forwarded the complaint to its Gender Sensitisation Committee against Sexual Harassment for enquiry. The AISA had said that the accused was told not to participate in organisational activities.

A group of women claiming to be JNU students said in a statement, “The survivor faced sexual harassment by the accused touching her inappropriately without consent and grabbing her forcefully from behind and continued this disgusting act.”

“The survivor is also being conveyed through classmates about conspiracies to defame and slut-shame her and her credibility from the grapevine,” PTI quoted the statement.
