A group of women pursuing B.Sc. (Nursing) programme in a private college in Nizamabad alleged on Thursday that college owner D. Sanjay was sexually harassing them.

Led by Progressive Organisation of Women (POW) Telangana president Sandhya, the students met Home Minister Nayani Narasimha Reddy here in his chamber in the Secretariat. The students charged that Mr. Sanjay had been harassing them with his behaviour and remarks since they joined the course in December last. Mr. Sanjay is son of TRS MP D. Srinivas.

“A week ago, a student sustained bruises after slipping in the hostel building. In the guise of helping her, he misbehaved with her,” Ms. Sandhya alleged. According to Ms. Sandhya, Mr. Sanjay took the injured student along with another student to his house and made sexual advances towards them.

She demanded that the government accommodate the worried students in a safe and secure environment and facilitate them pursue the degree programme. Ms. Sandya urged the police to invoke Nirbhaya Act against Mr. Sanjay and ensure that he gets stringent punishment.

The Home Minister assured the students of action after conducting investigation.
