Mangaluru, Oct 31, 2020: Prof Arabi U of the Department of Economics of Mangalore University has been suspended from service in a case of sexual harassment of a research scholar. The University Syndicate at its meeting recently had decided to dismiss him from service.
Though the Committee which had enquired into the case on the basis of a complaint had submitted its report two years ago itself, the then Registrar of the University Dr A M Khan had reportedly failed to initiate any action.
It was after the State Women’s Commission sought a status report that the Enquiry Committee report was placed before the Syndicate meeting and a decision was taken to dismiss the accused professor.
The University Syndicate had also decided to ask the government to initiate action against the then Registrar for not acting on the basis of the enquiry committee report.
