"We are shocked to learn this as the law requires that a separate FIR is registered for each complaint", they said in a petition.

Following students' protest, women rights organisations including All India Democratic Women's Association and All India Mahila Sanskritik Sanghatan on Tuesday held protest outside the police station demanding arrest of the professor.

"The professor got bail in minutes for being named in eight sexual harassment cases". By giving him more time, the Delhi Police is actively protecting him.

The protesting students blocked the highway, breached police barricades, and refused to attend classes until action is taken against the teacher.
