Gay professor commits suicide after being filmed having sex

A gay professor at India's Aligarh Muslim University has been found dead after his students and a television crew broke into his home and filmed him having sex with a man.

Srinivas Ramchander Siras, professor of modern languages, was found dead on 7 April at his home.

Police believe he may have committed suicide, although the results of a post mortem examination were inconclusive.

He was suspended from his job and asked to leave his college apartment after the sting, in which he was filmed having sex with a rickshaw puller.



The 62-year-old was reinstated after a high court revoked the university's decision.

The Indian Express reported it had spoken to Siras on Monday evening after the suspension was lifted.

"I want to go to America; I want to teach them Marathi. Not the literature, the language. America is the only place where I will be free to be gay, he was quoted as saying.

Gay rights campaigners have accused the university of driving him to his death.

Last year, the Delhi high court ruled that gay sex could not longer be criminalised.

Prince Manvendra Singh, India's first openly gay royal, accused those who filmed Siras of killing him.

"I would rate this as a murder. These people need to be taken to task. What right did they have to attack his privacy? It was private, consensual sex and these students and television people got him to commit suicide," he said to the media.
