Indian climate chief told to stay away from thinktank after harassment claim

NEW DELHI (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - An Indian court on Thursday ordered Rajendra Pachauri, a leading global voice on climate change, to stay away from his Delhi thinktank after a female employee accused him of sexual harassment.

Pachauri, 74, quit as chair of the United Nations panel of climate scientists on Tuesday, ending 13 turbulent years in charge of the Nobel Peace Prize-winning group, after the employee, a 29-year-old researcher, made the accusation.
