Beijing, July 28: A university lecturer in China has been sacked from his post for asking women students to expose their private parts and touch themselves during a test, reported Shanghai Daily.
According to Guangzhou Daily, employed with the University of south China in Hunan province’s Hengyang city, Yu Xiaohua asked women students of the School of Nursing to take off their clothes, including pants, during a test.
The test simulates the physical examination for patients.
Yu threatened students that they would fail the test in case any one of them failed to comply with what is being expected of them.
The students dared not oppose their teacher but they later complained about the incident online. The news triggered widespread anger against the teacher.
The test, held last month, contained 21 body examination items and only three items required students to take off their clothes, the daily said.
Yu also touched students’ bodies to demonstrate how to do the ‘examination skills’ the right way.
As public condemnation grew on the internet, the university ordered Yu to apologise to all students and was also removed from his post.
