Ramjas College professor held guilty in 2007 sexual harassment case

Dr. BN Ray, former vice-principal of Ramjas College, Delhi University, who was accused of sexually harassing 12 male students in September, 2007, has been held guilty. The verdict comes 10 years after he committed the crime.

Dr. Ray had been given regular retirement in 2008 and he has been enjoying post-retirement benefits. He has also been working as senior professor at an institute in Bhubaneswar.

According to details of the case, back in September, 2007, as many as 12 male students, primarily from the North East, had alleged before gathering of 700 students in an auditorium that Dr. Ray had asked for “sexual favours” from them. While he was removed from the post of the vice-principle and not allowed to teach, he was still on the roll for months. The governing body had settled for his compulsory retirement.

 

However, the left leaning professor was found guilty for sexual abuse after 10 years of filing the complaint.

The report says he is not fit to be employed in any of the institutes of the country. The petitioners have approached the high court claiming contempt of the orders passed on the lines that he still continues to be on board as faculty at the institute in Bhubaneshwar.
