A university student in Arau claimed that she has been sexually assaulted by her lecturer, who is also a popular motivational speaker, reported Harian Metro.
The 20-year-old student, who had feared that the lecturer would fail her if she exposed him, lodged a report at the Arau police station.
She lodged the report against the lecturer, who has appeared in television programmes and radio talk shows, after completing her final examination for the semester.
It is understood that in the latest incident last Friday, she was sexually harassed by the 40-year-old lecturer in his room.
According to a source, the incident took place at about 2.30pm when the student, along with her two friends, were summoned to meet the lecturer in his room for a study revision.
"During the revision, the man put his hands around her leg and chest a few times. At first, she tried to stop him but she feared that the lecturer would fail her if she did anything.
"She also alleged that she was subjected to constant harassment by the lecturer," said the source, adding that other female students had also fallen prey to the man.
Arau OCPD Supt Mohd Nadzri Hussain confirmed receiving the report, adding that a statement had been taken from the lecturer.
