A lady professor from Kolkata was forced to resign after she reportedly posted bikini pictures on her Instagram account. The matter came to the fore after she filed a police case. Soon, her story went viral on social media platforms. Many women came out in her support and posted their bikini pictures online.

Sharing about the incident, she informed that she felt ‘shame, horror, revulsion… every emotion with agonising intensity’ after being ‘slut-shamed’ in the University’s ‘Kangaroo Court’.

"Not only was I morally policed and harassed for over an hour over images which I had privately shared with a select group of people, but I was also forced to tender my resignation," she alleged as per an article in The Indian Express.

To add to her woes, the university officials sent her a defamation notice seeking Rs 99 crore damage after the matter become public. The university on the other hand alleged that she had invited students to her Instagram account.

According to sources, the lady professor is the former student of the same institute. She did her BA in English from there and went to do her MA from Jadavpur University. Later, she attended a European University for her doctorate.

During Covid, she took up the job as an assistant professor of English at her alma mater as she wanted to be close to her parents in Kolkata, her hometown. However, her private Instagram pictures became the reason of her problem after a student’s father complained about the pictures to the university authorities.

Since then, she has been under severe stress. Now, her parents are also under stress while her father was hospitalised twice in a matter of months.

Now, she has taken up a job in Delhi-NCR region but calls the resignation period as a relentless nightmare. She has received support in online campaigns. A number of women put up photos in bikinis to support her.

She says it should not matter what she was wearing.
