Former Delhi University lab assistant Pavitra Bhardwaj, who alleged sexual harassment by principal of Ambedkar College, succumbed to burn injuries on Monday.

Pavitra, a 40-year-old former DU employee, tried to commit suicide through self-immolation outside the Delhi Secretariat on last Monday.

After her self immolation, Bhardwaj told the police that she had taken the step as no one had been 'listening to her cries for help otherwise'.

"I had been sexually harassed by the principal of DU's BR Ambedkar College two years ago before being forced to resign as a chemistry lab assistant," Bhardwaj reported to police.
