A young woman, working as a data processor in Bengaluru, lodged a complaint against her boss, alleging that he offered her a Viagra tablet after she complained of headache.
According to media reports, the 22-year-old woman, working with a finance firm, sought permission from her boss to go buy medicine as she was suffering from severe headache. Instead of letting her go he gave her a Viagra tablet.
In her complaint, the woman alleged that her boss, identified as Mallappa, has been harassing her for the past couple of months. She claimed that he used to touch her 'inappropriately' when there was nobody else in the office.
She claimed that the accused, whose wife is in the US, also offered to marry her after her dad passed away and had sought sexual favours from her in return for money.
The woman said she had no option but to put up with the harassment as she felt nobody would believe her if she complained against her boss.
