RK Pachauri’s troubles don’t seem to be anywhere close to going away anytime soon. The former director general of The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) is already facing charges of sexual harassment.

One of the two complainants has revealed that he threatened her after seeing her interacting with a male colleague at a climate change summit in March 2014. Pachauri, she said, told her that “if you were ever to get a boyfriend, I will castrate him”. He told this to her while they were boarding a flight at Los Cabos in Mexico, an Economic Times report said.

Last week, amid strong opposition from women groups and students against his appointment as executive vice-chairman of TERI, Pachauri was sent on indefinite leave……

Pachauri went on indefinite leave after outgoing students refused to accept their degrees from him.
