An assistant professor from Tagore Medical College has posted a video on Facebook alleging physical assault and abuse by colleagues and administrative staff. The woman, Nila Babie, is seen breaking down in the video as she alleges her colleagues are forcing her to end her life.

She says she has worked for the college for the last one and a half years and lives on campus. The college is located in Vandalur, in the outskirts of Chennai.

She alleges her colleague Venkatraman has been saying “bad things about her behind her back.”.“Your life will be spoilt,” they threatened, she says.

“When I entered the staff room a senior faculty forcibly pushed me. I fell down in front of students. It is inhumane torture,” she said in the video.

“I am very depressed. They are forcing me to commit suicide”.

“They've locked me inside the room. No food for me over the last two weeks. Last two days they've stopped water. I'm physically sick,” she alleged.

She reached out for help saying, “I am depressed. Please help me. Please save me. I need justice.”

The Quint reached out to the college principal who said investigation is underway, police officials are on campus and the management is looking into the matter.
