She admitted to being harassed at the end of last October in a campus environment, according to Detik.com.
The student said the incident occurred when she was going to do thesis guidance with her lecturer. She admitted that the thesis guidance was in the lecturer’s room. After the thesis’ guidance session went smoothly, the student shook the lecturer’s hand and was suddenly grabbed tightly and seduced, quoting from her statement in the video.
The student admitted that after the lecturer held her hand tightly, not long after, her body was brought closer. Then the lecturer held her head and kissed her forehead and cheeks. Out of fear, she then lowered her head. However, her head was raised again in a state of fear. Because she refused, the student was then allowed to leave the room.
