The Panjab University Teachers Association (PUTA) has written to PU Vice Chancellor seeking stern action against Guru Nanak Girls College, Principal Charanjit Mahal, where she allegedly threw her walking stick at Prof Rajesh Gill of the University.

Prof Gill, dean faculty of arts and head of sociology department, went to the college on May 27, along with retired Prof Aruna Goel and others, as deputed by PU to conduct an inquiry into a complaint where 21 teachers of the college were allegedly harassed by the management. Condemning the action of PUTA has written to PU VC, Prof Arun Kumar Grover requesting him totake immediate action.

PUTA has held that it would not allow the dignity of university teachers to be compromised at any cost. If teachers are sent for any duty to an affiliated college, PUTA expects that their physical security and dignity of work should be taken care of, the members said.

“This is not an isolated case. In the past as well, we have received reports of college authorities refusing to open the gates to the teachers deputed by the university for inspection,” said Mohammad Khalid, PUTA president.
