Bhopal, June 19 (IANS) Gyaneshwar Patil, an Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer in this Madhya Pradesh capital, was Friday suspended and an inquiry was ordered against him after he was allegedly caught sexually assaulting his male secretary.
Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan told reporters that the officer was suspended and an inquiry was ordered to establish facts of the matter.
Patil, the chief executive officer of the Bhopal district panchayat (council), was late Thursday found by a group of mediapersons allegedly indulging in a sex act with his male secretary in the office wash-room.
“Patil has been sexually harassing me for a long time but I could not complain as I was afraid of losing my job,” the victim told mediapersons.
Patil refuted the charge. “It is a conspiracy against me, hatched in association with some mediapersons,” he said.
