Pune: The State government has formed a five-member committee to investigate allegations against Hiralal Jadhav, the suspended principal of Pune-based Daulatrao Jadhav Jail Officers Training College (DJJOTC). In 2012, 17 women trainees had accused him of sexual harassment.

An inquiry indicted him and he was suspended.

Now, the committee headed by Mumbai Police additional CP Aswati Dorje will conduct a detailed investigation as per Vishakha guidelines. The other members of the committee are ACP (social security branch) Arvind Sawant of Mumbai Police, legal expert Advocate Anupama Pawar, social worker Farida Lambe and Yerwada central jail deputy superintendent Aruna Mugutwar, who will be the member secretary.  

The women trainees had alleged that Jadhav often made inappropriate comments about their clothes, referred to relatives visiting them as their ‘customers’ and used obscene and insulting language. An inquiry was conducted and charge sheet was filed against him in 2013. Now, the committee will probe allegations against him and submit a report to the government in two months.
