HYDERABAD: Three assistant professors of a private engineering college were booked for allegedly demanding sexual favours from three final year girl students. The accused apparently threatened to fail the students in the examinations if they did not heed to their overtures.
The incident, which took place in a private engineering college located at Abdullapurmet, came to light on Monday after various student unions staged a massive dharna in front of the college demanding action against the accused.
Learning about the incident, SHE Teams intervened and spoke to the girl students. The accused apparently sent abusive messages to the students on social media and mobile phones.
The accused have been identified as Venna Saidi Reddy, in-charge of exam section; Gopi, HOD of Computer Sciences department and Osman, an accountant, all in their early 30s.
“Three separate cases have been booked against them based on the complaints by the victims,” said SHE teams in-charge, ACP M Snehitha.
