New Delhi: In a shocking incident, a senior Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) professor was accused of causing sexual harassment to his domestic help. However, Delhi police has refused to confirm any such report.

According to reports, one 18-year-old girl has accused the senior professor at School of Social Sciences, of sexual harassment and wrong intentions.

The professor was luring the girl for several months for sexual favours. After knowing professor’s wrong intentions she eloped with his nephew to Jabalpur, informed the police sources. The girl was later recovered from Jabalpur after her family members lodged a missing complaint with the police.

The girl, who lives in the servant quarters of professor’s house with her family, even accused the professor of having illicit relations with other women in the neighbourhood.

Sources revealed that the professor is being questioned in the wake of the charges against him. However, DCP south zone Chhaya Sharma dismissed the reports.

It is assumed that the police are working under pressure therefore trying to suppress the case.
