Kozhikode Farook college on Wednesday suspended Malayalam assistant professor Dr P. Abdul Asees after he was booked on charges of raping a girl student.
The Hindu reports that the college informed that Dr. Abdul had been suspended on July 25. He was on leave from July 2015.
A 20-year-old Dalit girl student filed a complaint with the Feroke police on Saturday, alleging that the assistant professor had sexually abused her, on the pretext of marrying her.
The complainant alleged that he raped her at his staff quarters in March 2015. Though reports stated that he had been absconding, he surrendered to the police on Sunday morning.
Dr. Abdul Asees, who is married and has two kids, has been booked under Section 376 (Rape) and under various sections of SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.
