Kathmandu, May 26
Nepal Health Research Council has suspended a staffer after accusations of sexual harassment.
The council suspended training officer Bijaya Kumar Jha after an intern filed a complaint at the council against him for sexually harassing her.
Nepal Health Research Council’s member secretary Pradeep Gyawali says that the council has commenced an investigation after the woman filed a written complaint. He says a committee has been formed to investigate the case.
“We’ll know more after the investigation,” says Gyawali.
Jha had been suspended for two months in 2019 after he misbehaved with a female colleague.
