A 27-year-old woman, a contract worker, was allegedly confined to a room in the D Block at the State Secretariat and made to watch a 35-minute long pornographic film by an employee on Friday.

The incident came to light Saturday after the woman approached the Chief Security Officer of the Secretariat and sought stringent action against him.

It appears the accused, identified as Syed, was in the habit of watching porn and had been doing so at the Secretariat for at least two months. The victim also lodged a complaint with the higher officials of the General Administration Department seeking immediate action.

Sources said the woman works as a sweeper in the scanning wing run by a private company at the D block. According to her complaint, Syed asked the victim to clean his room on Friday. Minutes after she entered the room, he closed the windows and doors and forced her to watch the film.

“Syed, who is also a contract employee hired by the private firm, enjoys watching porn in office. Some of his co-workers had noticed him watching such films and even warned him to mend his ways,” the sources said. A senior security officer told Express the victim, accompanied by Class IV employees’ union leader Venkateswarlu, had lodged a complaint with them.

Venkateswarlu demanded immediate action against Syed and recalled that the employees had taken the issue to the management of the scanning wing but that there had been no response so far. The security officials said they would investigate and take appropriate action.
