Sexual harassment case storms southern naval command

An Indian Navy officer's wife stationed in Kochi cantonment has alleged sexual harassment against her husband and some of his superior officers. Kochi police have registered a case against 10 officers after the wife of a lieutenant reported that her husband made her sleep with them.

She has alleged her husband did this to further his own career. "If the police can produce them, I can identify. That time they came towards me. Some people tried to cut my hair, some tried to touch my body. Some tried to take out my clothes. I shouted and cried like anything," she added.

However, Southern Naval command has dismissed her allegations. It has issued a statement saying the couple had marital differences, and the woman is leveling allegations to build up a case against her husband. In a statement Navy sources said that the couple was sent to a marriage councilor in an initiative to mend the relationship.
