Delhi court summons KAS officer for sexually harassing junior
NEW DELHI, Sep 13: A Delhi Court has summoned Asif Hameed Khan a senior Kashmir Administrative Service (KAS) officer presently posted as Special Secretary, Public Works Department for sexually harassing a junior KAS officer while he was the Additional Resident Commissioner in New Delhi.

Khan was shunted out of Delhi after the Police had registered an FIR against him under Sections 354-A and 509 of the Indian Penal Code on directions of the Delhi High Court. The case was registered after Khan’s immediate junior complained against him for forcing her to develop physical relations.

The court order comes after the Delhi Police had sought closure of the case citing lack of evidence for prosecuting Khan.

The female officer had filed a protest petition through her lawyer Suhail Malik seeking dismissal of the closure report.

The former Deputy Advocate General appearing for the complainant pointed out that the Investigation Officer of the case deliberately tried to eclipse statements of various important witnesses who had testified against Khan.

These witnesses include 2 female KAS officers and MLA (Banihal) Vikar Rasool who was then Minister of State for Hospitality & Protocol.

The Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sumit Dass while holding that the Investigation Officer of the case is wrong in his opinion and that there is ample material on record, has summoned Khan through the Resident Commissioner of J&K at Delhi and has asked him to appear on November 16 to face trial.
