Two professors of the Mumbai University were Friday arrested for molesting three colleagues, the police said.
Assistant sports teacher Nilesh Lohar, 43, and head of department, Physical Education, B N Chougule, 56, were arrested nearly 10 months after the allegations were first levelled against them.
Their complainants — an assistant sports teacher, a librarian and a sweeper in the physical education department — claimed that neither university officials nor the police took their case seriously; instead they were harassed. It was only after they met the Police Commissioner that the accused, whose bail pleas were rejected by a court earlier this month, were arrested.
The university authorities, the police said, had issued a warning to the accused after the victims first approached them.
