“The male gardener masturbated at her in the lift. She had pressed the 4th floor button and he, the 6th. But the man moved the lift to the 8th floor. He did not let her go until she screamed,” a woman student told NDTV.
College authorities blamed students for dressing inappropriately. Students claimed that their complaints have not been taken seriously. “In the past too, there have been instances of male workers peeping into our rooms, intruding into our privacy,” a student leader said.
