NEW DELHI: After being questioned by the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) St Stephen’s College principal Valson Thampu on Thursday expressed his distress by comparing himself to don Dawood Ibrahim.
“I am Dawood Ibrahim that is why I am being hounded,” Thampu said, frustrated at the manner in which he was being “attacked” in connection with the case pertaining to sexual harassment of a research scholar.
“I am a clown. I am clowning because the society seems completely out of place. Nobody knows what happened; everyone is just assuming. All this is not going to make any difference to me and my priorities,” Thampu told Express. “I am enjoying this game. Everyone will be disappointed when the investigation is over because I know my role in the case and the vested interests are not going to be happy with that,” he said.
“I feel desperate about the blind society around me and the ones, who are trying to malign my image, as they are wasting their time,” he added. Taking cognisance of the complaint filed by the victim last month alleging that she was molested by her supervisor Satish Kumar, the Commission summoned Kumar and Thampu.
