NAGPUR: Thousands of Visveswaraya National Institute of Technology students staged protest at the administration block on Wednesday, over alleged molestation of a first year students by a college professor.
Sources informed that on Wednesday morning, the victim was sitting with her close friend in the lawn area of the college campus when a security guard scolded her and seized her identity card. The guard handed over her I-card to a professor at the chemistry department.
Few minutes later, the professor called the student in his cabin to return the I-card. However, the girl came crying out of the room and alleged that the professor molested her. She claimed that the professor outraged her modesty and even blackmailed her of ruining her image.
The shocked victim immediately alerted her parents and friends. College sources told that the victim’s parents were all set to file a police complaint when the college authorities prevented them from doing so and asked them to submit a written complaint at student council.
Despite the girl’s complaint, the professor had threatened her, sources said. Enraged over this, thousands of first, second and final year students protested in front of the administration block late on Wednesday night, demanding stern action against the professor.
