DNLU's lady Assistant Professor receives harassment letters; University stands in support

The Assistant Professor Ms Swati Parmar of the Dharmashastra National Law University has been getting some letters which are harassing in nature and these are also tagged to people like Chief Justice and Chief Minister. Now, the Vice Chancellor of DNLU, Prof. (Dr.) V. Nagaraj, has issued a notice of solidarity for her.

DNLU tweet reads, "The Vice-Chancellor has issued a notice of solidarity with the Assistant Professor of the Dharmashastra National Law University, Ms Swati Parmar. The filthy and frivolous letters sent to her are condemnable."

The circular issued by the VC stated that it is unfortunate that Ms Swati Singh Parmar is going through mental trauma because of the mischief played by some unknown persons. The letters have been marked to the Chief Justice and Chief Minister.

"The university stands with her in these difficult times. If she wants to lodge a police complaint, the university will support that so that the police investigation may reveal who these cowards are," reads the circular.

"It may be appropriate to mention here that many anonymous emails/letters in the past were received targeting other members of the university affecting the workplace and academic environment. No action against any member of the university is taken based on anonymous/pseudonym complaints. In every such incident, the concerned person is informed about such communication, and a response is sought only for internal records," added the circular.

The VC's circular also informed that in the past, some people have followed appropriate legal channels to report such incidents to the police and the university also supported their decision. 

The university also confirmed that neither in the past nor in the present, any enquiry was/will be made by the university where the complainant remains anonymous or mentions a pseudonym.
