BENGALURU (BENGALURU): Alumni of the National Law School of India University (NLSIU) have chastised the university for taking steps against two members of its sexual harassment inquiry committee.The two are said to have discussed with other members of the varsity the ordeal of a survivor in a sexual harassment lawsuit.The said lawsuit involved a student from another law school who complained of physical and sexual assault by a new student at NLSIU.In a tweet in April, the survivor had listed the accused's name.

During the investigation, the boy's identity was revealed.Since the survivor was not a student at NLSIU, she was unable to discuss the case of sexual harassment on these websites herself.The problem of privacy violation is not addressed, according to the letter signed by around 200 alumni.The university found a significant infraction in DARIC's discipline laws (DARIC) for revealing the facts, according to the statement.

The alumni said that asking the varsity to reverse its decision was unique and that a decision like this will undoubtedly have a chilling effect on the voices of other survivors, present and future.Response of the universities According to NLSIU, the accused student filed a lawsuit under the university's IT policies, which was later referred to the DARIC (Disciplinary Matters Advisory Review and Investigation Committee).The DARIC conducted an investigation and released a report, finding that the facilitators' conduct was incompatible with the spirit of fairness, the right to privacy, and the duty to avoid harming NLSIU members.According to NLSIU, the student facilitators violated part II (a) (1) of the Principles of Conduct, 2002, which states that any conduct that results in significant physical or emotional harm to any individual is considered to be significant incompetence; and, according to NLSIU IT Policies, 2020, for infringing on the complainant's right to privacy by disclosing sensitive personal information; for providing false information to the complainant; and for sending an unauthorised email.
