Lone woman forest ranger pleads for CCTV surveillance

A woman employee of the forest department filed a petition in the Madras High Court to install CCTV cameras in her work place in the forest rangers office at Madukarai, Coimbatore. She said that she is a lone woman employee working in the isolated place and that she is facing harassment from her higher official. The woman is temporarily working as a computer operator from March 2017.

 She said that she had given several complaints to the higher authorities but the concerned official is using his clout to stall the inquiry. Her present petition is to direct the authorities to complete the inquiry and submit a report to the District Forest Officer. Justice Vimala ordered notice and posted the matter after two weeks for further hearing.
