The professor of the University of Hyderabad, who was arrested on Friday for allegedly molesting a student from Thailand, has been sent to 14-day police remand on Saturday.

"Professor Ravi Ranjan who was facing an allegation of assault on a foreign student studying in Hyderabad Central University has been sent to 14 days remand," said K Shilpavalli, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Madhapur as quoted by media.

Following Ravi Ranjan’s arrest on Friday, the central university has placed him under suspension with immediate effect.

"The University condemns the incident that occurred involving Prof. Ravi Ranjan, Department of Hindi, and a student on December 02, 2022," read the statement released by the university yesterday.

Earlier in the day yesterday, students resorted to protests at the campus demanding stringent action

against the professor following which he was arrested by the police.

The professor allegedly called the student, who is a native of Thailand and recently joined the post-graduate course, to his residence near the campus on Friday evening on the pretext of teaching her Hindi and tried to sexually assault her after offering alcohol.

The victim, who was deeply traumatised by the sexual assault, narrated the incident to her classmates using an online app for translation as she was unable to communicate properly in English.

The victim was then rushed to the health centre of the university by other students. After the medical check-up, she lodged a complaint with the Gachibowli police station under Cyberabad Police Commissionerate. The Director of the Foreign Exchange Programme of the central university also lodged a complaint in connection with the incident.
