IN spite of the evidence in this case this man, Manjunath Siddaiah is trying to plead to some misdemeanor charge that will NEVER show on his record so he can continue his "career" and I wonder how many more young girls will be sexually assaulted by this man because his "people" and some "higer ups" at ASU who do not wish their names to be public are trying to sweep this under the rug and flee the bad publicity involved in this incident. If it was their child I wonder if they would feel the same way???? This is absolutely an outrage and so much the normal actions for "incidents" which are bad publicity for the college and for Professor Malathi Srivatsan who is 100 percent behind her fellow countryman Mr. Manjunath!!!!!! God help us all.
Hear the truth at ASU

I am in a position to have heard the details of the attack on the student in Professor Malathi Srivatsan's research lab by one of Professor Srivatsan's Indian Post Doc student researchers, and let me tell you if ASU doesn't get a mega lawsuit it will surprise me. To this day Professor Srivatsan continues to discuss this case with fellow coworkers and other students in the ABI building, and she seems to be unable to keep her mouth shut long enough for her pet researcher to even come to a plea agreement, therefore she has compromised the case, and the victim's privacy, however, ASU has done nothing to silence or discipline Professor Srivatsan, hmmmm, strange that. This poor victim, who was afraid for her life, and was physically and mentally violated by her superior has had to endure daily punishment from Professor Srivatsan and the other Indian coworkers in the lab, thus, the victim has become the persecuted and all anyone cares about is that the attacker may never be able to work around students or children again, here or in India, and I ask you....if this was your daughter would you want her working in a lab alone with this man???? Also, the biggest question being, why would ASU or Dr. Srivatsan allow this 30 year old man to take this 22 year old student to a secluded room to teach her with no one else around in the first place?? This would seem that the school and the professor put this young girl in harm's way from the first, and now they stick up for her attacker! Sounds like typical ASU, right along with sweeping the attack under the rug and denying any responsibility. Flash back on the incident at the Brickhouse where two ASU professors allegedly drugged and raped another female student!!!! History repeats itself at ASU over and over, you know some of it has to be true, and yet ASU takes NO responsibility or measures to keep their students safe from the school employees. This is out of control and it is time for it to stop! Before you send your daughter to ASU, RESEACH what is allowed to go on there!
Manjunath Suddaiah Guilty

On April 4, 2008 Manjunath Suddaiah, the research Post Doc who worked in the Biological Sciences Department for Professor Malathi Srivatsan and who was accused of Rape/Sexual Assault on one of Professor Srivatsan's 22 year old female employees, pled guilty in Craighead County, Jonesboro, AR to a charge of Sexual Indecency, and also a felony Battery charge, was given 12 months for the Sexual Indecency, and 72 months for the battery charge, both Suspended Imposition Sentences, charged court costs and the cost of DNA test, and asked to leave the United States. Is that enough of an admission of guilt for Professor Srivatsan to unerstand???? Now maybe the victim can stop being persecuted because of someone else's inconvenience!!!!! Shame of our universities for allowing this to happen to innocent girls!!!!!!!!! This is NOT India, women are not chattel and they have thier rights here!

Malathi Srivatsan kept her mouth shut, and avoided the press. In addition, when approached by several members of the Indian community who asked her to help the rapist, she refused. There are no Indian ties here. She originally let him teach her, because there shouldnt be a problem with two adults teaching each other. In no way does she condone what happened, or did she want to hurt the case against him.
