According to report, Prof. Silajit Guha (HOD of Mass Com Department , SU) has been accused of molesting some of his students at a wedding ceremony .
The Sikkim University ( SU ) on Tuesday removed a professor after a student lodged a complaint of sexual harassment against him by a student of his department, an official said.
According to report, Prof. Silajit Guha (HOD of Mass Com Department , SU) has been accused of molesting some of his students at a wedding held in Ranipool, East Sikkim, which was attended by majority of the students and faculty members of the Department.
Subsequently a complaint was filed to the Internal Complaint Committee (ICC ) of Sikkim University and University Authorities have removed Prof. Guha from the post of the Head of the Dept as well as debarred him from the departmental premises till the inquiry of the ICC is complete, so that he could not influence the victims in the Department.
The Sikkim University Students Association have been strongly standing by the victims and have desired a very strong action against the accused if found guilty. The accused has been missing from the University and on inquiry it was found that no leave has been taken by the accused which renders him absconding.
The ICC trials are soon to begin and the summon notice will be dispatched very soon and it is very hard to say weather the accused will be coming or not says SUSA. The issue has also attracted the attention of state Women commission.
The Sikkim University Students Association have made it a point that the trials must happen at the earliest and further necessary action must be taken so that no such incident take place in Sikkim University.
