SHOCK: Indian Professor Dr. Siras, At Center of Gay Sex Tape Controversy, Found Dead

Ugh. Dr. Srinivas Ramachandra Siras, the 64-year-old chairman of the Modern Indian Languages department at Aligarh Muslim University in India, who was suspended and then reinstated by a court after being unknowingly videotaped having sex with another man, was just found dead.

Suicide is suspected — and just after the professor reported feeling vindicated by the whole ordeal, and telling a television reporter “now I can go back to my beloved university. … I am happy because I have been judged in a wrong way. I have already said that I am gay. I am the same man, with the same qualification, with the same features and personality.”
