TERI Director General R K Pachauri, accused of sexual harassment by a woman employee, was today allowed by a Delhi court to enter his office premises except the head office here and a branch in Gurgaon.

Additional Sessions Judge Raj Kumar Tripathi allowed the plea to modify the earlier order restricting his entry into the offices of The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI).

The court had on March 21, granted Pachauri anticipatory bail while imposing the conditions that he will join the probe as and when called and not enter the TERI office premises.

The police had yesterday sought cancellation of the anticipatory bail to Pachauri, saying he was influencing witnesses and misusing the liberty of bail, a charge denied him.
