Domestic help accuses L. Subramaniam of sexual harassmentSeptember 7th, 2010 - 9:26 pm ICT by IANS
Bangalore, Sep 7 (IANS) Violin maestro L. Subramaniam has been accused of sexual harassment by a domestic help whom he had named as a suspect in a case of theft from his house, police said here Tuesday.
“The maid, Bhagya, has sent a complaint against Subramaniam through an organisation but has not herself lodged a written complaint with the police,” Bangalore city police commissioner Shankar Bidari told reporters.
“We will investigate if she files the complaint,” he said.
Subramaniam had complained to the police Sep 2 that around 5,000 euros, Rs.55,000 and a gold chain were missing from his house in upscale Raja Mahal Vilas II Stage in north Bangalore.
Police said Subramaniam suspected Bhagya, 25, and she had been questioned over the missing cash and jewellery in the violinist’s house.
However, on Monday, Dalit Rakshana Vedike (forum to protect Dalits) lodged a complaint with the police claiming that Subramaniam had been sexually harassing Bhagya.
“We have acknowledged the receipt of the complaint but no case has been registered as the maid herself has not lodged the complaint,” a police official said.
Subramaniam and his singer wife Kavita Krishnamurthy have denied the sexual harassment charge and said they will fight it out.
Bidari said probe into the theft in the violinist’s house was on and that no arrest had been made.
