Agartala, September 11, 2017: A female Tripura Civil Service (TCS) officer has charged her boss of trying to molest her. The tribal officer posted as Deputy Collector & Magistrate at Kailashahar, headquarters of Unakoti district, claimed the incident occurred at her official residence on September 8. 

In a written complaint the 2016 batch officer demanded protection and punitive action against Sub Divisional Magistrate (SDM) Subrata Chouhdury who visited her official residence at 7.45am on September 8 last without prior intimation.
After a while the SDM suddenly made ‘unusual advances against me by grasping my head and made attempts to outrage my modesty’, she wrote in the complaint.

The victim further said she pushed him away to save her modesty. She said she was feeling unsafe since the incident occurred as she is living with her 6 years old nephew and a maid in her official residence.

She marked the latter to Chief Secretary for necessary action from his side.
