Allahabad HC stays suspension of 'gay' professor

Allahabad HC stays suspension of 'gay' professor - Allahabad - City - The Times of India


ALLAHABAD: The Allahabad High Court on Thursday stayed the suspension of an Aligarh Muslim University reader against whom disciplinary action was taken following reports of his involvement in a homosexual relationship.

A division bench of Justice Sunil Ambawani and Justice Kashi Nath Pandey passed the order on a writ petition filed by Professor Srinivas Ramchandra Sirasi challenging the suspension order.

On February 19, AMU vice-chancellor P K Abdul Azis had suspended Sirasi, a reader in the department of Modern Indian Languages, and asked him to vacate the varsity premises accusing him of "misconduct" following reports of his alleged homosexual relation with a rickshaw-puller, which had led to a furore in the minority educational institution.

In his petition, Sirasi had refuted the charges levelled against him.
