Indian Professor Reinstatned After Gay Entrapment


A high court in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh on Thursday revoked the decision of a prominent university to suspend a professor caught in a gay sex sting in February.

According to India Today, the Allahabad High Court overturned the move by Aligarh Muslim University that suspended Shrinivas Ramchandra Siras, chairman of the school's modern languages department. University officials suspended Siras on February 11 for having gay sex in his official campus residence.

"Probably aware of Siras's homosexuality, some AMU members had allegedly asked local TV reporters and two camera persons to conduct a sting operation on him on February 6," reported India Today. "This was done despite the Delhi high court recently decriminalising consensual gay sex."

Last year's Delhi high court ruling awaits the outcome of a supreme court challenge.
