A man studying at University of Gothenburg was recently thrown out of the classroom due to what a peer believed to be "sexual harassment", according to GP on Friday.

The man was said to have put his hand on a colleague's leg, and was told off for doing so. According to other students the man also brought up discussions about people's genitalia and sexuality in a provocative way, which made his peers feel "uncomfortable and outraged".

"The man's verbal and physical pestering led to a disciplinary order", explained GP, but the man has objected to the allegations and the local magistrate is looking into the case. The man claims the stories aren't true, but the university is pressing for further investigations, explained GP.
