Visva Bharati Student Lodges Police Complaint Against Molesters


The Visva Bharati student, who was allegedly molested and sexually harassed by three of her seniors last week, lodged a complaint with the police here today and expressed readiness to record her statement.

The Kala Bhavan student, who hails from Sikkim, reached the Bolpur SDPO Suryaprasad Yadav's office along with her parents and lodged the complaint against the three who are from the same department.

Yadav said a woman police officer of Bolpur police station interrogated her and she expressed her readiness to record her statement before a judicial magistrate in Bolpur court under section 164.

"We shall seek permission from the court tomorrow to record the statement of the girl under section 164," he said.

The girl had complained to the principal of Kala Bhavan, where she is a second year student, and had alleged that the three accused had recorded some obscene pictures with their mobile phones and threatened to blackmail her with those.

She had filed the complaint on August 28 and had left the campus with her father after meeting Vice-chancellor Susanta Dutta Gupta the next day.

Meanwhile the three students, two from the second year and one from third year, who were arrested following an FIR lodged by the University authority in connection with the incident were produced in Bolpur court during the day.

Sub-Divisional Chief Judicial Magistrate Sanghamitra Poddar ordered them to police remand for two days.
