Punjab Ombudsperson Rukhsana Gilani on Monday decided a sexual harassment case in Lahore. The complaint was registered against headmaster of special education centre by a teacher for harassment at workplace.
The female teacher (complainant) said that the headmaster had been harassing her ever since she was appointed at the centre. Though she avoided interactions but whenever they crossed paths, the headmaster would utter sleazy poems and even tried to hold her hand once. She added that after she continued to snub her offensive advances and upon feeling rejected, he even tried to initiate departmental inquiries against her.
After hearing both sides and thoroughly investigating the matter, the ombudsperson found the headmaster guilty of sexually harrasing the teacher and ordered to urgently remove him from the position.
