HC relief to woman officer in sexual harassment case

HC relief to woman officer in sexual harassment case
A woman Research Officer with the Department of Indian Systems of Medicine got relief from the Delhi High Court which has directed the government to constitute a "proper" committee to inquire into her accusation of sexual harassment by a senior colleague.
The woman officer, working in the Department of Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy (AYUSH) under the Health Ministry, had contended that the sexual harassment committee appointed earlier by Department was headed by a person junior to the accused, which was against the law in this regard.
Aggrieved by non-compliance of guidelines laid down by the apex court in this regard by the Department, she had approached the Central Administrative Tribunal which declined to direct the government to re-constitute the committee on the ground of lack of jurisdiction.
