Ottawa Citizen reported that Ottawa Deputy Chief Uday Jaswal, who is accused of sexually harassing three female employees will face a disciplinary hearing in December.

Deputy Chief Uday Jaswal is charged with three counts of insubordination and three counts of discreditable conduct under the Police Services Act for allegedly sexually harassing two female Ottawa police officers and allegedly sexually harassing and assaulting a female civilian employee.

The first complainant worked in the Ottawa Police Service’s courts, communications and victim crisis section. The woman alleged that between 2015 and 2016, Jaswal, then superintendent of the section, repeatedly asked her out for dates and unwanted touching.
