Women's hostel warden accused of seeking sexual favors surrenders before court
An absconding women's hostel warden, accused of seeking sexual favors from a few inmates, surrendered before a court here today.
Punita (32) gave herself up before the 6th Judicial Magistrate Court, which remanded her to judicial custody till August 14, they said.
The woman was absconding after the inmates and their parents lodged police complaints stating that she had asked five girls during a birthday party of the hostel owner on July 22 to extend sexual favors to him in return for a waiver of hostel fees and other benefits.
The warden had also allegedly issued death threats to the girls if they spoke to anyone about her offer. Both she and owner Jagannathan went underground since then.
