RK Pachauri moves Delhi HC seeking permission to travel abroad
New Delhi, April 23 (ANI): After a sessions court refused to hear his plea seeking permission to travel abroad, former United Nations climate panel chief, Rajendra K Pachauri, filed a writ petition before the Delhi high court. Pachauri wants to attend a Global Water Summit in Greece from April 26 to 29. Pachauri is accused of sexually harassing a 29-year-old female researcher from his Delhi-based think-tank, The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI). He has denied the allegations. The woman, who is a researcher at TERI, claims the 74-year-old Indian scientist began harassing her soon after she joined the non-profit think-tank in September 2013. Pachauri also filed a petition before Metropolitan Magistrate seeking permission. Prosecution lawyer, Prashant Mendtiratta, said that objection was raised against the petition.
