The National School of Drama in New Delhi on Sunday clarified that a young woman who complained of molestation by a guest lecturer was never its student.
The 25-year-old woman, in her complaint on August 1, alleged that she was inappropriately touched by a 62-year-old retired Professor at a workshop.
"The applicant was never a student of National School of Drama, as has appeared in a section of print and electronic media. She was an applicant for the selection process for admission to the three-year diploma course in dramatic arts," an NSD statement said.
It said that an internal committee set up to probe is yet to submit its final report for further action.
