#MeToo: 10 Women Allege They Faced Sexual Harassment At Doordarshan
One victim alleged that the Internal Complaints Committee held the Doordarshan employees guilty. However, no action was taken.
At least 10 women have alleged that they had to face sexual harassment at Doordarshan Television Network, according to law firm Bhandari and Associates.
Law firm member Varuna Bhandari said that they have spoken to the victims — six from Delhi, one from Bhopal, Jaipur and two from other places — and the “details were horrific,” The Indian Express reported.
In one of the cases, a woman employee was “terminated from the job” in 2015 after she complained against two of her bosses who allegedly sexually harassed her. The woman alleged that the Internal Complaints Committee held the Doordarshan employees guilty. However, “nothing actually happened”. Later, she moved Central Administrative Tribunal for relief. Another woman alleged that her salary was put on hold after she levelled charges of sexual harassment against an employee.
