The complaint was forwarded to the Gender Sensitivity Committee headed by external member Reba Majumdar, the spokesman said, adding the committee held two meetings on the issue since Thursday and recorded the statements of the accused and the victim.

"No action has so far been taken against the accused associate professor as the director is waiting for the committee's final report," the spokesman said.

The matter was not referred to the police either, he said.
