He had given his mobile number to some students who were weak in academics, offering to help them. When students contacted him to get their doubts clarified, he saved their numbers and harassed them by sending objectionable message through SMS or WhatsApp.

One of the victims informed her parents, who then complained to Police Commissioner V. Ravinder through WhatsApp. On the direction of Police Commissioner, a police team began the probe. A case was registered after it found prima facie evidence against the accused.

In another case, Rajiv Gandhi University of Knowledge Technologies (RGUKT), Basara in Nirmal district sacked head of chemistry department following allegations that he was allegedly seeking sexual favours from a student in exchange for awarding her pass marks.

Varala Ravi was dismissed after a committee constituted by RGUKT Vice Chancellor A. Ashok found him guilty. He had allegedly called female student who failed in exams to come to his house. He was also sending obscene messages to her.
