New Delhi: The Delhi high court has directed the disciplinary authority of IIT Delhi to decide within eight weeks on a complaint of sexual harassment against one of its professors.

Justice Vibhu Bakhru asked the disciplinary authority to take a final view in the matter expeditiously and granted liberty to the alleged victim to apply afresh if she is aggrieved by the decision.

 

The high court’s order came on a plea seeking directions to the board of governors of the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi to take action on a report submitted by the internal complaints committee (ICC). She made a complaint of sexual harassment against one of the professors at the institute claiming that the ICC found the allegations, including that of stalking were correct and accordingly, recommended punitive action against the accused.

According to the plea, the ICC examined the complaint and it submitted an inquiry report to the disciplinary authority (board of governors, IIT, Delhi).
