RK Pachauri is a sexual harasser: Another 'victim' speaks out
Pachauri used to tell her that he could lift hefty and heavy women and lifting her will 'not be difficult'.
New Delhi: Another former employee of TERI has come out in the open with allegations of sexual harassment against RK Pachauri.
The woman, who had joined in 2003 and worked for year, made some stinging allegations against Pachauri.
She alleged that Pachauri, who was then DG of TERI, made sexual advances on her, adding that she tried to get help from other senior TERI officials but they refused to help.
The lady said that Pachauri used to call her to his office on flimsy grounds and indulged in sexually loaded conversions with her.
The complainant adds that Pachauri even gave her a nickname which was sexually suggestive and used to call her by that name in private.
“He made attempts to hold my hands and touch me,” she said.
Pachauri used to tell her that he could lift hefty and heavy women and lifting her would 'not be difficult', she said, adding that he used to call her on her mobile and used to her ask her out for dinner.
The lady said that Pachauri used to behave indecently with other women at TERI as well.
She said that she had approached the police last year but her complaint was not taken seriously.
Her revelations are eerily similar to the allegations by another ex-TERI employee, whose complaint led to the ongoing probe against Pachauri.
Yesterday, Pachauri was appointed executive vice-chairman of TERI, a post created for him, though judicial proceedings are going on against him.
Pachauri is currently out on bail.
