The Karaikal district administration today ordered an inquiry into the allegations of sexual harassment levelled against a top official of the Municipal office here.
The action comes following a complaint lodged by a female staff of the Karaikal Municipality on Thursday, alleging that Municipal Commissioner Gandhirajan had tried to misbehave with her.
Ordering an inquiry into the charges, District Collector P Parthiban told PTI that a four-member committee has been formed to carry out a detailed probe into the allegations against the Municipal Commissioner.
"Suitable action will be taken based on the findings of the committee," he said.
