A woman professor at the Indian Institute of Management (IIM-Indore) here has filed a complaint of sexual harassment against her colleague.

She lodged the complaint with institute director N Ravichandran against the associate professor of marketing department on February 20, a spokesman for the institute said.

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 yesterday 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.
