Dear Sir,

We are facing a very piquant labor issue at our workplace (Softura Private Ltd, Tamarai Tech Park, Guindy, Chennai — 600 032). There is a person called ‘Anuradha Kalyanasundaram‘ who joined the company in April/May 2015. Her original role was to act as a scrum master but some of her perceived attitude problem, temerity and her excessive flatulence towards her ego seems to be a huge impediment and taking a toll on team’s integrity. We have tried our enough to escalate to the management but with her position and prowess of twisting tales and talks she is putting us in distressing situations in multiple instances.

Most of the times she touches the body parts of even other sex people and talks. We have escalated this to our management. Now she has desisted from such a deplorable gesture at least this week. But she is forcing people in isolated rounds to stay alone late night. On Wednesday she made one of our team member to sit beside her on the pretext of tuning down the efforts for an agile PBI task. Only one other developer was there in another corner of the development hall. He was totally afraid because as an act of retaliation she might scream molestation. The hall does not have sufficient CCTV in that directions as a footage proof of what is going on.

Again yesterday on the pretext of demo preparation she is asking some one to stay for extended hours. But then he was advised to start off with a team member around 10.40 PM.

We are really concerned about a potential and foisted sexual harassment from her because of raising voice against her last Friday (07/17/2015) . I have also reported to National Commission for Women and Children (vide docket number 2014110108250) but there hasn’t been any action hitherto. Even work-wise she is harassing the team making them to stretch odd hours and visit weekends besides wasting everyone’s time in unneeded bureocratic meetings. On a survey through peers, she has earned the wrath of everyone but her prowess and potential is the one which is daunting for anyone. In a couple of sessions she also told that she is invincible because I once commented that I would go to law enforcement. Now she is telling that she knows a lot of powerful people and local law enforcement is just play toy for her. She also adds that she never has wore a helmet and she knows the cop near her place very much and hence she does not have any fear. She is presenting a deep sense of fear seeding a sense of job insecurity and career dis-satisfaction to everyone. One of the peers commented that he also suspects that she joined with fake credentials and experience. But none of us could raise voice against her because of her mafia hood at workplace and outside.

Kindly help us and our organization from the clutches of this demon.
