NEW DELHI: A day after the appointment of R K Pachauri as Executive Vice Chairman of TERI, the woman who accused him of sexual harassment slammed the Governing Council for creating a post especially for him and said she will take the case to its logical conclusion.
In an open letter, the 29-year-old victim said: “Shamelessness abounds! The news of promotion of a man who stands booked on charges of sexual harassment at workplace, stalking and criminal intimidation by the country’s who’s who makes my flesh crawl.”
“The Governing Council of TERI met twice within a month to address insecurities of R K Pachauri and could not even hold a meeting over my complaint or my letter to them (dated 3 April, 2015) nor could they meet to discuss the Internal Complaint Committee (ICC) report presented on 19 May, 2015. They had the time and the will to convene two board meetings in a span of one month. This was very unheard of considering that TERI GC would only meet once every year per Rules and Regulations of TERI,” she said.
