A court here on Tuesday framed charges against two assistant professors of University of Rajasthan (RU) who were accused of demanding sexual favours from a PhD student preparing thesis under their guidance.

The court of chief metropolitan magistrate (CMM) Bharat Bhushan Gupta, on Tuesday, framed charges against Dr Rishi Kumar Singhal and Dr S N Dolia under Sections 354, 341, 292 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Section 4/6 of the Indecent Representation of en (Prohibition) Act.

On June 27, 2011 a girl belonging to Bharatpur, registered an FIR against the two professors at the Gandhi Nagar police station. In her complaint, the girl alleged that her research guide, RK Singhal, from the Physics department was harassing her and forcing her to have sexual relations with him. He allegedly used to threaten the girl that if she did not do as she was told, he would not let her complete her PhD.

Besides molesting her, Singhal and his colleague S N Dolia allegedly blackmailed the student by morphing her face onto some obscene pictures. The victim also alleged that her guide had attempted to rape her in the department’s laboratory in February 2011, but she claimed to somehow escape from the accused.

When the accused’s behaviour became unbearable, the victim approached police with her parents and lodged an FIR with Gandhi Nagar after which the duo was arrested.
