New Delhi, Feb. 10 (ANI): In further embarrassment to environmentalist RK Pachauri, who is already entangled in a legal battle over sexual harassment allegations, a former employee of The Energy and Resources Institute (Teri) on Wednesday accused him of harassing her sexually.

The woman’s lawyer Vrinda Grover said that they had first reported the matter to police in February last year but they did not do anything till date forcing her to come out in public with the charges.

“A year ago, we informed Police that there are two other women who want to give statement, and their statement will show that he is a habitual sexual harassment offender and that will show the conduct of this man,” Grover told ANI.

She further said that her letters to DCP South and Police Commissioner didn’t get any response, no statements were taken in this regard.
