Public Statement by Coalition for Nuclear Disarmament and Peace(CNDP)
“We have come to know through social media that Kumar Sundaram of CNDP has faced serious charges of harassment by a female friend who has participated in CNDP activities. Sundaram has now publicly acknowledged the veracity of the charges and apologised for his behaviour. However matters cannot rest at this and CNDP is undertaking the following measures:
1) A committee headed by well-known feminist Kalyani Menon-Sen will look into the matter and advise CNDP in regard to this matter and will help CNDP to formulate and put into practice a permanent process to properly deal with issues of sexual harassment and inappropriate behaviour, now and in the future.
2) Till such time Kumar Sundaram stands suspended from CNDP.”
