Two BPO managers sacked on sexual harassment charge

The management also sacked another manager for failing to inform his seniors despite being aware of the matter.

While a written complaint has been filed at the Udyog Vihar police station, no first information report (FIR) has been lodged yet.

Manpreet Singh, administration head of GBS call centre in Udyog Vihar Phase 1, told IANS that the four women trainees had accused Alphi Chugh, 28, of sending them obscene SMSes and making advances, with the inducement that he will declare them successful in the training programme.

They also said Chugh threatened them of dire consequences after they approached the management.

Assistant manager Deepak Kumar was sacked as he was allegedly aware of the whole episode but did not inform his seniors.

"The four women had joined the call centre Nov 14 as trainees," said Satendra Dahiya, station house officer (SHO) of Udyog Vihar police station.

The police are yet to question the accused, he added.

The women have handed over the SMSes to the police. They also said the company had terminated their training, but Manpreet Singh denied the charges.

The women hail from Punjab and Darjeeling, and are currently living in south Delhi's Malviya Nagar area and Haryana's Faridabad district.
