A forensic scientist hailing from the northeast region has accused his colleagues in Delhi’s prestigious Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL) of racial discrimination .
Upset by the alleged racial slurs he suffered at work, the senior scientific officer from Manipur — C.P. Singh — has filed a defamation case against his colleagues. The CFSL assistant director has accused 16 of his colleagues of bullying him and openly calling him “Chinky Owl” and “Ching Chong” at work.
The officer, who works at the physics department of FSL and is an expert in voice identification techniques, alleged that these colleagues regularly gang up against him, pour scorn on him and ridicule him in public, frequently using racial slurs to demean him.
