It may be recalled that, just a day ago, an activist from AISA was accused of sexually harassing a woman on the JNU campus.
On Saturday, May 28, the student organisation had informed that the complaint was forwarded to its Gender Sensitisation Committee against Sexual Harassment for inquiry. Furthermore, the activist against whom the accusation has been levied has been told to not take part in any of AISA's activities.
"The survivor faced sexual harassment by the accused touching her inappropriately without consent and grabbing her forcefully from behind and continued this disgusting act," a group of women claiming to be JNU students said in a statement.
"The survivor is also being conveyed through classmates about conspiracies to defame and slut-shame her and her credibility from the grapevine," their statement further read.
