JOHOR BAHRU: Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) has confirmed that the lecturer who allegedly gave an obscene questionnaire to a female student is not one of its staff members.

UTM vice-chancellor Ahmad Fauzi Ismail said the university had nothing to do with the case, and the student was also from a different public university.

“We have referred this to our legal adviser. The student is not from UTM, and we also don’t have the course (which was listed in the questionnaire).

“The lecturer never served at UTM and is unknown. We also do not know the purpose (of using the UTM logo),” he told reporters at a public university administrators’ convention here.

Fauzi also said that the university was leaving it to the police to conduct further investigations into the case.

Meanwhile, Tangkak district police chief Fadhil Minhat said the investigation paper had been completed and the case had been referred to Bukit Aman’s investigation and legal division for further action.

Police had also recorded statements from all parties involved following a report lodged on June 2 last year. The case was investigated under Section 509 of the Penal Code, Fadhil said in a statement yesterday.

Earlier in a viral social media posting, a female university student claimed that the incident occurred last year.

She also shared a screenshot of the police report and a conversation with her lecturer on WhatsApp, where she was asked to respond to a survey on sex awareness among students in higher learning institutions. - FMT
