A complaint has been registered against Dr JS Patil, Vice-Chancellor of National Law University and Judicial Academy, Assam (NLUJAA) by the Gauhati Police on allegations that he had indecently exposed himself to his neighbours.
It has been reported that an FIR has been registered against Patil under Sections 294 (Obscene acts and songs), 354A (Sexual harassment and Punishment for sexual harassment) and 509 (Word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) based on two complaints.
The first complaint was jointly filed by 18 women, while the second one was filed by Advocate Anjanav Kumar Gogoi seeking an investigation into the matter.
The genesis of the whole issue can be traced to a Facebook post that accused of Dr Patil of showing "his genitals" to a mother-daughter duo. The post also alleges that Dr Patil had been engaging in such indecent activities on multiple occasions; particularly targeting the women of his neighbourhood.
