The official had threatened to upload her nude pictures on internet

Reluctance to seek police help against sexual exploitation at work place cost a manager with a private consulting firm heavily. She was raped by a senior colleague over a period of two years.

According to the complaint filed by the victim with the Cubbon Park police station on September 5, her story of sexual exploitation began way back in October 2008 when she joined Sandalwood Consulting Private Limited as a manager in the legal finance section.
From day one, she received unwelcome attention from a senior colleague.

“On October 24, 2008, Chief Financial Officer Ajay Jalan asked me to stay back beyond working hours on the pretext of some important meetings. Later, he took me to Managing Partner Hari Iyer’s chamber where he raped me. When I threatened him to go to the
police, he apologised and convinced me that it wont happen in future,” she stated in her FIR.

Threatened

That was not the end to her misery, as Jalan began harassing her sexually after some days. “He also managed to take my pictures in nude and threatened to upload them on internet. As I was helpless, he used to take me to hotels and other places and repeatedly raped (me), which went on for nearly 2 years. Finally, when the torture became unbearable, I filed the complaint with the support of my family members,” she said.

However, the Cubbon Park police refused to comment on the issue stating it as a personal matter between the duo. It is learnt that Jalan has not been attending office since last week as the victim finally gathered courage to approach the police.
