A junior college associate professor wrapped an electrical cord around a student's neck during a class as an "educational demonstration," police said Monday.
The incident took place at Tsu City College (Mie Tanki Daigaku) last December. The 46-year-old associate professor of Life Sciences was teaching a social worker training course when he suddenly wrapped an electrical cord from a PC around a female student's throat, TBS reported.
During police questioning, the man reportedly told investigators that he wanted to teach the students something about the unpredictable nature of life. The student said there was no warning or explanation beforehand, TBS reported.
The university says the associate professor in question is to be given a warning for conduct unbecoming.© Japan Today
