The Delhi University on Thursday suspended an associate professor of College of Vocational Studies. Moreover, for reportedly “sexually harassing” fellow female colleagues.
The suspension of Manmohan Bhasin was sanctioned by Delhi University Vice Chancellor Yogesh Singh. Singh further went on to say, “following recommendations of governing bodies for suspending a male associate professor of College of Vocational Studies on grounds of alleged sexual harassment of a female colleague, DU has suspended the teacher and an enquiry will be conducted in the matter”
However, Bhasin, when questioned on the same, went on to say that. “I have not received any suspension letter as of now, so I have nothing to comment about it.”
The governing body developed an internal complaints committee after three female teachers had filed sexual harassment cases against him. Hence, one is from the Ramjas College and two of CVS.
On June 25, the governing body of the CVS censured Bhasin and debarred him. Furthermore, from holding any administrative position in the college till further notice. Also, the decision to suspend him came after he allegedly started interfering with the investigation of the case. As well as was also abusing and misbehaving with the teaching and non-teaching staff.
