JNU Prof Atul Johri Gets Bail in Sexual Harassment Case

The JNU professor resigned from two administrative posts- the director of the Human Resources Development Centre and the director of the Internal Quality Assurance Cell- on 'moral grounds'

Professor Atul Johri was called by the police for an enquiry on Tuesday after students alleged him of sexually harassing female students in the class.

Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) professor Atul Johri, who was arrested for sexual harassment of several women students, was today granted bail by a Delhi court.

Denying the accusations, Johri said the group of students failed to attend the labs regularly and when he mailed them for compliance to attendance, he was being targeted with sexual harassment charges.

Atul Johri, a Ph.D. from Delhi University with specialization in microbial pathogenesis and membrane proteins structure, joined JNU as Assistant Professor in 2004 and became a professor in February 2014. "The students conspired to complain against him", he said.

"It is important to note the top officials of JNU Administration have not till date released a single statement condemning or taking action against Atul Johri". In the first FIR, the complainant had addressed the issue, claiming that she "feared for her personal and academic life" because of which she stayed quiet.

Advocate R K Wadhwa, appearing for Johri, had moved a bail plea saying sending him to jail would spoil his career. "The investigation is being closely monitored by Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police Monika Bhardwaj", Joint Commissioner of Police Ajay Chaudhary said. Police had, at the time, filed only one FIR, and had claimed that they affixed the complaints of seven women to the original FIR, registered under the name of a student at the School of Life Sciences. The police said a probe was on in the case.

He also said that the allegations levelled by the woman pertains to 2013-14 but the FIR was registered in 2018.
