In her complain a, 53 year old teacher claimed that she has been “abused” and “humiliated” by the principal since 2013. “I have been targeted for raising my voice against all irregularities in my department and the college over this period of time. I am being harassed and humiliated constantly while dispensing my duties and was also threatened of dire consequences for not following the principal’s directions,” she said.

The teacher has also condemned the principal of ‚Äúoutraging her modesty‚Äù. ‚ÄùI was asked to meet him alone many times but I did not comply with him. He has used highly derogatory and humiliating words against me many a times…I request you set up an independent inquiry and to take proper action against him,‚Äù she said.
