According to the details, an English language lecturer teaching a class of BS Engineering took a surprise quiz on December 6, comprising a passage about a French brother and sister who make love while staying in a cabin on a beach during a summer vacation trip.

“What do you think about that? Was it ok for them to make love?” are some of the questions asked at the end of the passage.

The university after an internal inquiry on January 5 terminated the lecturer who was serving as a visiting faculty member and also blacklisted him for any future teaching engagements.

Additional Registrar of Comsat University, Naveed Khan, confirmed to the media that the lecturer had been dismissed after he admitted his fault during the probe.
