Ex-UN cli­mate chief faces trial:

Arab Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

An Indian court has ruled there is enough ev­i­dence to send for­mer UN cli­mate chief Ra­jen­dra Pachauri to trial on charges of stalk­ing and sex­ual ha­rass­ment in a case filed by a for­mer fe­male col­league in New Delhi.

Ashish Dixit, a lawyer who rep­re­sented Pachauri be­fore the mag­is­trate on Fri­day, said there was no case against Pachauri and he will fight the charges dur­ing the trial, the Press Trust of In­dia news agency re­ported.

Mag­is­trate Charu Gupta set Oct 20 for pre­trial pro­ceed­ings.

Po­lice reg­is­tered the case against Pachauri af­ter the 29-year-old fe­male col­league ac­cused him three years ago of sex­ual ha­rass­ment, stalk­ing and crim­i­nal in­tim­i­da­tion. (AP)
