Days after Jauhar Munnavir, a professor at Farook Training College in Kerala's Kozhikode district, attracted much ire from the public for his offensive remark comparing women's breasts to 'sliced melons,' the professor is finally being held accountable for his remarks. The Koduvally police on Thursday evening registered a case against the social science professor for insulting women in a public speech made a few months ago. Jauhar now faces charges under IPC sections 354A (punishment for sexual harassment)  and section 509 (words, gestures or acts intended to insult the modesty of a woman.)The case was filed based on a complaint filed by Amritha, a student of Farook college. However, the police are yet to summon the professor for questioning.
