Chennai: In a horrific incident reported from a premier college in Chennai, a man masturbated at a student in an elevator on campus. Moreover, when the victim complained to the hostel warden, instead of taking action, she was told to go change her clothes. The insensitive and shocking behavior of the warden along with inaction against the staffer who molested the girl has resulted in students protesting against the college administration.

Angry protests erupted at Chennai SRM university premises after the student faced sexual harassment inside the campus. Subsequently, a hostel staffer has been arrested for alleged sexual harassment. On Thursday night, hundreds of students from the SRM Institute of Science And Technology came out to protest the harassment of college mate who had been sexually abused inside the campus, alleging indifference on the part of college authorities.

A student, staying in the hostel, took the elevator from the ground floor to reach her room on the sixth floor on Thursday evening. A staffer who was already inside the elevator started masturbating on her. Aghast by the act, the student tried to escape but the man blocked her path. She stopped the elevator and escaped when it stopped at the fourth floor. The victim shouted for help and immediately went to the hostel warden to report the matter.

To her shock, the warden asked her to change her dress and go to sleep. Moreover, she kept abusing the victim about wearing short clothes and told her not to wear such dresses. As per a student’s post on social media, the warden also insinuated that such things mostly happened to ‘north Indian’ girls.

When the warden refused to take immediate action over her complaint, students came out of their hostel rooms to seek justice and demanded action over the victim’s complaint. Upon investigation of the CCTV footage, it was later found out that the accused was a staff worker who clears the food wastes from the canteen and mess halls inside the campus. Moreover, it was found that he had the access for entering any place inside the campus at any given time.


After the students protest grew big, the Director of the university assured action and an official at SRM University said that the hostel warden, who had indulged in victim shaming, has been asked not to enter campus till an inquiry was over.

An official complaint has been given from the institution’s side at Maraimalai nagar Police Station and an FIR has been registered under sections 294(b) (sings, recites or utters any obscene song, ballad or words, in or near any public place) and 354 (Assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) of the IPC and the accused was arrested and would be sent to remand soon.
