NIFT professor sacked for ‘indecent conduct’
Kangra: Services of an assistant professor teaching at National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) in Kangra have been terminated following furore over a sight-seeing trip he took to Barot with a girl student few days back.
The professor, Rajan Kochar, and the girl had reportedly gone to Barot two weeks back and had stayed there together for two days. Sources said the girl had accompanied him out of her will. Institute director Dinesh Rangra said while the services of the professor have been terminated, the girl has been suspended from the institute. The institute also called the girl’s parents to discuss the matte with them.
