INDORE: The complainant of alleged sexual harassment reported in the Indian Institute of Management, Indore (IIM-I) has been terminated from the post. The decision was taken after the report was tabled by the gender sensitivity committee recently.
Sources said, the woman professor was terminated on the grounds of administrative action. However, various people have raised fingers over the quick termination of the faculty member. “The woman was terminated without being served any notice or charge-sheet. How can a complainant in such a serious case sacked?” quipped a source.
On the other hand, the institute authorities, like in the past, are tightlipped over the issue. The institute has not revealed the finding of the newly established gender sensitivity committee. IIM-I, director, N Ravichandran refused to comment on the issue. “No comments,” he said.
The lady professor of the marketing department had lodged a complaint in February last week with the gender sensitivity committee. She had also expressed her mistrust on the committee to the IIM-I board chairman K V Kamath. Later, a fresh committee was constituted, which had tabled its report recently.

You certainly think, all women are victims and all men are evil. There new sexual harassment at workplace law, though not gender neutral, has got a “misuse clause”. So, if a woman files a false complaint, she can be sacked. Do not worry. Wife of a techie, who committed suicide due to her threats and domestic violence, also got jailed in Bangalore, thanks to campaigns by men’s rights activists. The last thing people like you want is gender equality. You think anti-male hate is justified and positive discrimination(sic) against men has to be instituted until all crimes end in society. That’s bigotry. For you anyone who questions unscrupulous women, is anti-women and a woman hater. 40,000 innocent women were jailed under 498a last year, but for you bigots, that is a non-issue.

have you bothered to check the facts of the case? why don’t you investigate better before putting up such a crassy headline and associating her being sacked with the harrassment complaint she had filed. I suggest you do it, you will surely get a different reality in the frame. My sympathies with the families concerned.
