    Riju Bafna, an IAS trainee, reveals her dreadful experience of dealing with her sexual harassment case in India and protests for women's rights on Facebook.

    “If you are born in this country, better prepare yourself for struggle at every step.”

    A female trainee with the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) shared details of her sexual harassment case on Facebook.

    Riju Bafna made the post on August 1, 2015, stating the full name and position of the man involved.

    She wrote: “Santosh Chaubey, Aayogmitra of MP Human Rights Commission, was sending me indecent messages last week.

    “I had filed an FIR against him and criminal action is being pursued against him.

    “He was immediately removed from his job, thanks to the swift action by my Collector, Shri Bharat Yadav.”

    But it was no smooth affair when she recorded her statement.

    “I asked the judicial magistrate to ask others to leave as I was uncomfortable giving my statement in front of so many people.”

    Lalit became annoyed and shouted: “How dare you suggest me to leave, I am an advocate here and you might be an officer in your office but not in the Court.”

    Riju explained her request for privacy was a legal right, but Lalit did not take that well and left the room in anger.

    The IAS trainee in Madhya Pradesh also claimed the Judicial Magistrate made an outrageous remark.

    She wrote: “He said that you are young and that’s why demanding such things.”

    She later apologised and revised it to say: “Idiots are lined up at every step and people are highly insensitive towards our sufferings.

    “If you are born in this country, better prepare yourself for struggle at every step.”

    Narottam Mishra, the Cabinet Minister and government spokesman, claimed Riju was satisfied with the outcome of her complaint.
