Stephen's molestation case: HRD ministry seeks report from DU

New Delhi, Jun 24: The HRD ministry has sent a notice to Delhi University seeking a report in the molestation case of a research scholar allegedly by a St Stephen's College professor.

"The communication was forwarded by DU Registrar to the college and I have sent a status report on the same to the university," St Stephen's Principal Valson Thampu said.

Satish Kumar, an assistant professor in St Stephen's chemistry department was yesterday denied anticipatory bail by a Delhi Court in a sexual harassment case.

The student, who is doing her PhD under Kumar, had approached police last week alleging that she was molested by the accused in October, 2013.

Delhi University authorities confirmed that they have received the response from St Stephen's College and the same will be communicated to HRD soon.

"A note from the Principal of St Stephen's College was received by DU late last evening. The university will respond to MHRD's letter soon," DU spokesperson Malay Neerav said.
