Dr Ghazanfar Ali arrested for allegedly harassing one of his female students. He was arrested on Wednesday after severe public backlash. Dr Ali heads the Department of Biotechnology at Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) University, Rawalpindi.
The university did not take any action against him at first, but now the police are trying to get him released from custody.
The local residents claim that he has a track record of being involved in such objectionable acts.
