An Indian student in London, who is reportedly in a relationship with a professor, has revealed how he was targeted by a group of students, who used his name, social media handle and photographs in a Facebook group called ‘The Sociology of Rape’.
The students, believed to be from the prestigious University of London, allegedly threatened him with rape, and even suggested he might die if he ever spoke out.
The students also took out advertisements on the university website asking for money to pay for a taxi to travel to a university event.
The student told the Mirror that he had been bullied by the students for months, but it was only when he made the revelation on social media that he received the response he wanted.
The university is understood to have responded by suspending the professor.
A spokesperson for the university said: “The University of Westminster condemns the actions of this individual and we will not tolerate any form of abuse.”
The professor’s name has been withheld to protect his identity.
The university has declined to comment.
