The world’s top climate change official has protested his innocence after being accused of sexual harassment by a 29-year-old researcher at his organisation.

The female employee lodged a complaint with the Delhi Police accusing Rajendra Pachauri, a 75-year-old Nobel Peace Prize winner, of repeated inappropriate behaviour, both physically and through emails, texts and WhatsApp messages.
