Dehradun:

Uttarakhand Governor Baby Rani Maurya on Thursday directed a probe into the complaint of a student of G B Pant University of Agriculture and Technology against her hostel warden who asked her to cook for him as his wife was away.

The governor asked the VC to conduct a speedy probe into the matter and take stern action against the warden if he was found guilty, a Raj Bhawan official said.

The student, who lives in the university campus hostel, had complained to authorities that the warden contacted her late night asking whether she could cook for him as his wife was away.

She complained to the vice chancellor about the incident but allegedly no action was taken in the matter for 10 days, after which she approached the varsity's disciplinary committee.

Ms Maurya also sought a report from the VC on the management of girls' hostels at the university campus and asked him to ensure a safe environment for them, he said.
