A court inquiring into former Indian Air Force (IAF) Flying Officer Anjali Gupta’s sexual harassment charges against three senior officers concluded here on Friday that she had failed to prove the accusations, announced the IAF. “The three-member court of inquiry, headed by Air Marshal Bandopadhya, has concluded that Anjali Gupta failed to prove her complaint of sexual harassment,” said IAF Senior Personnel Staff Officer Group Captain Ajay Masson and its legal officer Wing Commander PC Prakash.
“No action needs to be taken against Squadron Leader RS Choudhary, Wing Commander VC Cyriac and CMDE A Chopra, whom Anjali accused of sexual harassment,” the court said.
About Gupta being the first woman IAF officer to be court-martialled, Masson said that records stated that some women officers had faced similar proceedings; but he refused to give details. —PTI
