“The committee heard the case on Wednesday. I cannot comment on the matter as long as a report is not submitted by the committee,” said Kumar.
The victim had alle ged that she was being sexually harassed right since she had joined the organisation, following which she had gone into depression.

She had also alleged that the accused had shifted her workstation close to his and had played obscene videos in her presence.
The victim had also claimed that due to such behaviour she had been admitted to the Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH), Sector 32, where she had received counselling.
