New Delhi, April 2

A female student at the Jawaharlal Nehru University has started an indefinite strike at the main gate of the campus, alleging inaction by its administration over her sexual harassment complaint against four persons.

She alleged that she was sexually harassed on the night of March 31 on the campus by four persons, including two former students. The university administration has ordered an inquiry into the incident.

The complainant, however, claimed that the “perpetrators” of the crime were roaming freely. “It has been more than 30 hours since I first filed the complaint, but no action whatsoever has been taken yet. There have been a bunch of formalities; my friends and I have been at the administration, missing our classes, demanding justice, and doing all we can, while the accused are moving freely,” she claimed.

The university, meanwhile, said it was following the due process. “We are following the procedure which takes time. We also have to give a chance to the accused to provide their defence,” JNU Chief Proctor Sudhir Kumar said. He had earlier said the two ex-students facing the allegations have been declared “out-of-bounds from campus”.
