Another JNU prof booked on sexual harassment charges

NEW DELHI: Delhi Police on Saturday said they have booked another professor of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) for allegedly molesting a student.
A complaint was lodged on Friday against Professor Ajay Kumar, a faculty member at the School of Social Sciences.
"We have received a complaint from a student against the professor at Vasant Kunj police station that he misbehaved with her a few days back. An FIR under Section 354 of the Indian Penal Code for sexual harassment has been lodged. We are investigating the matter," a senior police officer said.
However, the university administration said it had not received any complaint of molestation from any student.
"We don't know of the particulars of the case. Unless a student files a complaint with the Internal Complaints Committee of the university, we cannot take any action," JNU Registrar Pramod Kumar said.
This is third case of molestation in the university in a month. Four professors in two different cases were accused of harassment earlier.
