The reinstatement of RK Pachauri in TERI with the post of executive vice-chairman — a designation carved out specially for him — has rightly been lambasted and ridiculed in equal measure.

Reproduced below are the email, SMS and WhatsApp exchanges in which Pachauri indulged with his colleague.

LiveIndia has published a collection of electronic messages allegedly sent by Rajendra Pachauri to an unnamed woman who has filed a police complaint against him alleging sex assault, harassment, and stalking. These messages appear in a 14-page police document known as a First Information Report (FIR) and have been cut-and-pasted here. Their content has not been altered.

However, formatting has been added by Canadian journalist Donna Laframboise. Days of the week have been inserted in purple type. The Pachauri messages are in black type. The complainant’s are in blue. Line numbering has also been added. The complainant is a 29-year-old woman who began working at The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) in September 2013. Pachauri, aged 74, has led TERI for more than 30 years.

The final two pages of this document (Appendix) contain a short statement from a second woman, who worked at TERI a decade ago.
