Etawah: Junior Engineer molested the widowed female employee by holding her in the room
Etawah, 24 January (Hindustan Times). In the district, the junior engineer posted in the tubewell department has been accused of molestation by a class IV widowed female employee by locking her in a room. The aggrieved female worker has given an application to the SSP on Tuesday demanding legal action against the accused junior engineer.
The victim female employee said that after the death of her husband, she got a job in his place as a dependent of the deceased in the tube well department and is working as a gardener. On November 24, Junior Engineer Somnath Kulshrestha, posted in the department, molested her by nabbing her in the office room. The case was complained to the Civil Line Police Station and the police arrested the accused Junior Engineer but under the pressure of several officers of the department, the accused Junior Engineer was released after a written apology. In this, he had also withdrawn the complaint of the case. Even after that episode there was no improvement in the antics of the accused Junior Engineer. Last few days ago, the junior engineer once again caught him in the room and molested him. On his screams, other employees came and saved him. In this case, the aggrieved female worker has demanded legal action from the police against the accused Junior Engineer Somnath Kulshrestha.
Accused Junior Engineer Somnath Kulshrestha told that all the allegations leveled against him are baseless and other employees in the office conspired to implicate him.
Inspector-in-charge of Civil Line Police Station Vijay Bahadur Verma said that a woman employee posted in the tube well department under the police station area has given a complaint of molestation. The matter is being investigated and action will be taken against the accused.
