The Gandhinagar police on Tuesday questioned four officials, including the Centre Head, of the National Institute of Design (NID) in connection with a complaint filed by an associate professor against the institute for 'defaming' her and terminating her contract.
Deepa Chalke of Apparel and Merchandising Department had complained to the police that the warden of boys hostel, Shatrugan Tiwari, used to pass sexist remarks on her. She alleged that the NID management did not handle the issue in a sensitive manner and the warden kept harassing her through security guards.
Based on the complaint, the police questioned Tiwari, Centre Head Akhil Succena, administration head Siddharth Swaminarayan and faculty member Krishna Patel.
In her complaint, Deepa stated that NID authorities terminated her contract after she lodged a formal complaint with the institute in November 2011. The NID had terminated her contract on February 22 after which she lodged a police complaint.
