Indian Professor Suspended for Gay Sex

A professor on the verge of retirement from a prominent Indian university was suspended last week for alleged gay sex acts in his campus residence, despite last year's Delhi high court ruling that decriminalized gay sex.

According to the The Telegraph of Calcutta, Aligarh Muslim University asked professor S.R. Siras, head of the modern language department, to vacate his residence and face an administrative committee.

"AMU sources said on February 8, some unknown complainants submitted to the VC's office a video-recording of the professor 'in an indecent posture' with a young man, said to be a rickshaw-puller in his twenties. On February 10, the authorities decided to suspend the professor," reports The Telegraph.

The university is located about 80 miles southeast of Delhi in the city of Aligarh in Uttar Pradesh.

Siras, 64, maintains that he was framed by someone in his department.

Last July the Delhi high court decriminalized gay sex. The decision now awaits the outcome of a supreme court challenge.
