Ravenshaw varsity lady teacher alleges harassment

Cuttack: A lady lecturer of Ravenshaw University has alleged harassment by two of her colleagues.

The victim, Anjuman Ara, is a lecturer in the Hindi Department of the University. According to Ara, she has been subjected to various forms of harassment, including casteist remarks by her colleagues at the workplace.

“Recently, a few of my colleagues, including two lecturers from my department, mobilized around 60-70 students of the university and incited them against me. The students went on to verbally abuse me and also made casteist remarks. After inquiring from the students, I came to know that some lecturers are behind the incident,” said Ara.

“Even inside the department, I have been subjected to indecent behavior by my colleagues. There have been many instances where foul language has been used against me by my colleagues inside the University,” Ara added.

“Though I brought this to the notice of the Vice-Chancellor of the University and complained against my two colleagues, no action has been taken,” Ara alleged.
