QAU Assistant Professor Accused of Sexual Harassing A Female Student

A female MBA student at Quaid-e-Azam University is has filed a written complaint against an assistant professor for alleged sexual harassment during a meeting to discuss her quarterly grading. Our New York City sexual harassment lawyers have been following the case closely.

The Vice-Chancellor of the university reports that the young woman submitted a written complaint against Dr. Ajmal Waheed. She claims that during a scheduled meeting to discuss grading, the professor was sexually inappropriate. She goes on to claim that she “started crying on his indecent behavior, as the professor had crossed all limits of decency.” The student reports that she went directly to the Vice Chancellor and demanded action taken against Dr. Waheed.

The Vice Chancellor insists the matter is being investigated. Dr. Waheed, who works as the Head of Department of the School of Management, maintains that he will resign if found guilty of the accusations. He claims that the student was caught, by another teacher, in the act of cheating on an exam. As per standard procedure, the visiting teacher forwarded the testing materials to Dr. Waheed. Protocol would indicate that the cheating materials be forwarded to the school controller.

Dr. Waheed claims that the alleged victim brought a male friend with her to his office to request that the materials in question not be sent to the controller of the school for examination. The request was denied. He goes on to claim that the student in question failed a separate portion of the examination and requested an undeserved passing grade.

Once the request was denied, Dr. Waheed claims that the student fled his office in tears while leveling “baseless” allegations against him and the department. New York City sexual harassment lawyers note that the teacher in question has been teaching at the university for over thirty years without complaint. Time will tell the end of this story.
