R.K. Pachauri quits Teri to get engaged in other interests
23 April 2016 Current Affairs: Environmentalist R.K. Pachauri who was accused of sexual harassment by his former women colleagues in the recent past, has stepped down as a member of the governing council of TERI  “to get engaged in other interests” even though his employment contract with TERI expires in 2017.

Rajendra Kumar Pachauri  was the chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). He held the post from 2002 until his resignation in 2015, during which time the organisation was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

He resigned from IPCC amid allegations of sexual abuse of a junior colleague at the New Delhi branch of The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI).
