The women work at a call centre of a mobile company, where the accused is their team leader.

According to police, the complainant has been living on rent in a village near IMT with some other blind women and girls for the past one year. They were all employed as tele-callers at Vodafone’s call centre, facilitated by Nabet India in Sector 8, IMT.
She alleged in her complaint that on June 1, her team leader had arrived at their house in an inebriated state and molested her. When she resisted, she was allegedly sacked.
“The ordeal began on June 1, when the team leader began visiting our home every day with some of his associates, giving different excuses each day. The men would rush in and molest us. This continued for 10 days. When on June 11, I resisted, he molested and threatened to kill me, and later sacked me and some others on Wednesday,” the complainant has told police.
She “We found out that some other women employees have also left their jobs in the past due to their misbehaviour, which they would later blame on poor performance,” she added.
Based on her complaint, an FIR was registered against the team leader and his other associates under sections 354A (sexual harassment), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 34 (common intention) of IPC.
“We’re investigating the matter, keeping in mind the sensitive nature of the complaint as it involves the blind. We’re verifying facts and will take action as per law,” said inspector Satbir Singh, SHO, industrial police station, IMT Manesar.
Arjun Mishra, manager of Nabet India, said some of their women employees had been sacked due to their poor performance.
“Of them, the complainant was also found creating a ruckus inside the premises,” he said, adding that the woman has filed the complaint “intentionally”.
