The alleged victim in the RK Pachauri sexual harassment case yesterday hit out venomously, asking how her assaulter, instead of being punished, was being promoted by TERI.
But today it was the TERI founder’s turn. Pachauri lashed out at the young researcher, questioning her ‘motive’. He maliciously asks why the victim has left the country and he even doubted her credentials.
Meanwhile the alumni of TERI have severely criticized Pachauri for clutching on to his new post while the probe is on-going, and TERI’s complicity by silence.
This mud-slinging comes on the eve of the High Court hearing the victim’s plea to cancel the anticipatory bail of RK Pachauri.
