Prof. removed from post after sexual harassment charges
With allegations of sexual harassment against Stanley Suresh, Head of the Painting Department at Jawaharlal Nehru Architecture and Fine Arts University, the administration has decided to remove him from the post so as to facilitate a fair probe.
A show-cause notice had been sent to the professor and action would follow based on his reply. A committee is also being constituted to look into the allegations, varsity sources said.
Prof. Suresh had faced similar charges earlier too, first in 1995 and later in 2001 and 2010.
However, no action was taken by the varsity then, citing lack of evidence. He was removed as HOD then, only to be reinstated later.
