A university teacher who ordered women students to expose their private parts and touch their bodies in a test has been removed from his post, Guangzhou Daily reported yesterday.
Yu Xiaohua, a teacher of the University of South China in Hengyang City, Hunan Province, demanded women students of the School of Nursing to take off their clothes including pants in a test that simulates the physical examination for patients, according to the newspaper.
He threatened that students who refused would fail the test, which was held last month.
Students dared not oppose him but they later complained online that they "either took off their clothes or failed the test," according to one post that triggered widespread anger against the teacher.
The test contained 21 body examination items and only three items required students to take off their clothes, the newspaper said.
Students were told that they would draw lots to decide what they had to practice in front of the teacher.
However, Yu threw that out and demanded they each perform examinations on chests and belly, both requiring them to remove their clothes.
He also touched students' bodies to demonstrate the skills if he said they weren't doing it the right way, according to the newspaper.
As public condemnation grew on the Internet, the university announced the punishment against Yu on its website.
Yu was ordered to apologize to all students and he was removed.
The university pledged to improve the regulations on tests to prevent similar incidents.
