TRS Rajya Sabha member D Srinivas' son and former Nizamabad Mayor D Sanjay today refuted the sexual harassment allegations levelled against him by some students of the Shankari Nursing College.
Sanjay said that the allegations were made against him as part of a political conspiracy, and that he had no link with college. He said that he had already handed over the college to others, and that the certificates of the students were also with the college management.
Sanjay also said that he had not indulged in live-in relationships with anyone, and had no relations whatsoever with any of the students who had lodged a complaint with the Home Minister. Some people were merely hatching conspiracies to harm his political career, he claimed, and promised full cooperation to the police in the inquiry.
For the uninitiated, the Nizamabad Shankari Nursing College students lodged a complaint with Home Minister Nayani Narasimha Reddy on Thursday alleging that Sanjay was harassing them sexually. 11 Shankari Nursing College students along with POW leader Sandhya, and the leaders of PDSU and other student unions met the minister on Thursday at his chambers in the Secretariat. The students claimed in their complaint that they had joined the B Sc Nursing course last December, and were staying in a private hostel. Sanjay removed the Principal and was forcing the students to join the college hostel, and was scolding them in abusive language, he said.
They also said that Sanjay had forcefully taken two students to the college hostel and tried to molest them. In the process one of the two students was injured severely, they said. Sanjay then threatened her instead of sending her to her home.
They also claimed that Sanjay had kept another student in captivity on July 26. They lamented that Sanjay was harassing 11 out of the 13 students who had joined the course.
They urged in their written complaint, action on Sanjay and the college management, and steps to ensure that their academic year was not lost.
Reacting to the complaint, the Home Minister spoke to DGP M Mahender Reddy over the phone, and promised the students that the police would conduct a comprehensive inquiry into the incident. The police swiftly filed a Nirbhaya case against Sanjay.
