An eight semester BA-LLB student, Abhinav Gupta, 22, had been harassing Archana Shukla, 28, a faculty in the same department, for quite some time, said the victim’s police complaint.

The incident took place at around 11.30am when the victim was taking class. “Abhinav barged into the classroom and started abusing me. As I was about to leave, he slapped me in front of all the students,” said Archana.

According to the teacher, one Amity University official Naresh Chandra was present when Abhinav turned violent. “Since he has a political connection, he is uncontrollable. Last year too, he misbehaved with me after I refused to oblige him by marking him present on the days he was absent,” said Archana.

The university, which suspended the accused, had also set up a committee to probe the charges. Meanwhile, the police said it would talk to the head of the department before lodging an FIR. The accused’s father Pramod Gupta, who is the MLA from Auriaya, could not be contacted.
