JSMU Professor Beaten Up By Students Over 'Sexual Harassment'
A group of Jinnah Sindh Medical University (JSMU) students beat up a professor for allegedly sexually harassing female students.

A video of the disgraceful incident went viral on social media on Friday. In the video, students can be seen beating the professor, identified as Manzur Ahmad, with slippers.

According to a report published by Express Tribune, the female students said that the professor had been harassing them for a while, adding that the teacher used to ask students to maintain "relationships and friendships" in exchange for an increase in marks.

Later, JSMU Registrar Dr Azam said in a statement that the university has suspended the teacher and registered a complaint with its harassment and disciplinary committee, besides initiating an inquiry into the matter.

"The inquiry will be completed in a week and the results will be announced. [The] JSMU has a comprehensive anti-harassment policy and cases of harassment are dealt with seriously and strictly so that students feel safe," he added.
