Harassment case: LHC asks Ombudswoman to reply again

The Lahore High Court (LHC) here Thursday terming the reply of Ombudswoman as non satisfactory and directed her to file reply afresh by December 03 in a petition of Vice Chancellor of Punjab University challenging her order.

The Ombudswoman in a complaint of a lecturer of Punjab University Law College, Khajista Rehman, held the VC responsible of harassing her and ordered inquiry against him.

The VC has filed the contempt of court petition before the LHC saying that the court had stayed the proceedings before the Ombudswoman but issuing the order she has committed the contempt of court. The court held that the Ombudswoman cannot issue an order without giving opportunity of arguments. No one can be held a culprit only on the basis of accusations, the court said. Appearing before the court the counsel of VC prayed to the court to initiate contempt of court proceedings against the Ombudswoman for holding proceedings despite restraining order by the court.

Ms Khajista Rehan had filed a petition before the LHC raising sexual harassment allegations against the VC and seeking his removal from the institution.
