Prof accused of sexual harassment reinstated

Less than a week after the bail granted to four final-year students of the Rajendra Prasad Medical College at Tanda near here in the Kachroo case led to public outrage, authorities have reinstated R S Yadav, head of the department of biochemistry.

Principal Secretary (Health) P C Dhiman confirmed the reinstatement on Friday, saying: “Yadav has been reinstated but the government probe against him is still on.

“Under service rules, we can’t keep an employee under suspension too long,” Dhiman told.
Yadav had been placed under suspension by the government for the second time in April last year on the complaint of the woman student that he was influencing her to withdraw the sexual harassment charges levelled against him.
