Accordingly, Infosys officials handed over the cheques to Rasila’s father Raju O P and brother Lajin Kumar in the presence of members of the Pune Malayalee Federation. Family members said although they have got the compensation from Infosys, they expect the company to conduct proper inquiry against the “seniors” whom they alleged “were harassing Rasila at workplace”. Raju O P said Rasila had complained to her family about alleged harassment by some of her seniors in the company, due to which she wanted a transfer to Bengaluru. Family wants this issue to be thoroughly investigated.
On Thursday, Rasila’s family members had a meeting with Pune Police Commissioner Rashmi Shukla. Family members told Shukla that they hoped the accused security guard, Bhaven Bharali Saikiya (27), arrested in this case will be given death penalty. Family also expressed that senior lawyer Ujjwal Nikam be appointed as special public prosecutor in this case.
