Accusing the Guna project director V P Gupta of allegedly harassing her, the woman official, told the commission that he created such unfavourable working environment for her in Guna office that she had to take a transfer to Bhopal.

Gupta never wanted me to work in the office, he dint even give chairs to other women engineers to sit, the woman told the bench headed by commission chairperson Lata Wankhede on Thursday. She told the bench that after clearing PSC, she was sent to NHA Guna office on deputation where she worked for two years. “Gupta did not want me in the office as he was unable to do any kind of corruption in my presence,” said the engineer.
