According to sources, Delhi University suspended an associate professor from the College of Vocational Studies on Thursday for reportedly “sexually harassing” multiple female professors. Following a meeting on Wednesday, the college’s governing council recommended his suspension, which led to the decision.

Yogesh Singh, the vice-chancellor of DU, approved Manmohan Bhasin’s suspension, according to persons with knowledge of the situation. Bhasin, however, asserted that he had not received any such letter of suspension. When PTI called Bhasin, he responded, “I have not gotten any suspension notice as of now, thus I have nothing to speak about.” According to an associate professor at the College of Vocational Studies (CVS), Bhasin has been the target of numerous instances of sexual harassment.

According to the professor who wished to remain anonymous, the governing body established an internal complaints committee after three female teachers — one from Ramjas College and two from CVS — reported him for sexual harassment. “He began interfering with case investigations and mistreating both teaching and non-teaching employees while also assaulting them. The governing committee decided to suspend him because of this “explained the professor.

Bhasin was disciplined by the CVS’s governing council on June 25 and is no longer permitted to hold any administrative positions within the college until further notice. “Since his (Bhasin’s) response was deemed unsatisfactory, the wrongdoing he did is now proven. Manmohan Singh Bhasin is hereby subject to the minor sanction of censure, as decided by the college’s Governing Body. Additionally, until further order, you are prohibited from holding any administrative positions at the college “There was a message from the college. Manmohan Singh Bhasin was also urged to refrain from such behaviour in the future and to conduct himself in accordance with the Code of Professional Ethics for Teachers.

Vice-chancellor Singh received a letter from the National Commission for Women (NCW) in March addressing a complaint made by a CVS teacher who accused two of her coworkers of intimidating, harassing, and abusing her. The NCW had urged the V-C to give a report on any actions taken as soon as possible.
