Haryana women panel chief says IAS officer’s complaint seems about work harassment

CHANDIGARH: Haryana State Commission for Women chairperson Pratibha Suman mentioned on Wednesday the complaint of the lady IAS officer in opposition to her senior “appears to be a case of harassment related to work, moderately than sexual harassment.”

The commission had taken suo motu cognizance of the problem and had summoned both the officials to report their statements.

On Wednesday, the senior bureaucrat of the rank of extra leader secretary, who was once accused of sexual harassment via the lady officer, appeared sooner than the commission at 11 am and submitted paperwork in his defence and denied all the allegations.

The director-general of the dept of animal husbandry also appeared sooner than the commission in pursuance to the summons sent via it, and recorded his statement concerning the case.

The lady officer who had levelled the allegations on this case, also appeared sooner than the commission on Wednesday afternoon and sought a while to post paperwork related to the case. She was once granted one week.

The chairperson of the commission showed that some more officials may be tested within the topic.


As in keeping with the complaint, given via the 2014 batch lady IAS officer, her senior officer used to converse along with her in “double meaning phrases” and had even threatened to spoil her annual confidential report.


“At one instance, the officer advised me, Jab koi nayee dulhan aati hai ghar mein to make use of samjhana padta hai, mai tumhe samjha raha hun (When a newlywed bride enters the home, she must be explained the entirety, and he was once explaining to me in the same means). His behaviour turns out immoral,” the complainant had submitted.


However, the 57-year-old bureaucrat, has termed the allegations false and baseless.
