The University of Technology’s administration is currently locked in discussions following an incident last night where a male student was beaten by security guards.
The incident happened after the student was allegedly found in a compromising position with a male peer, upon which he was set upon by a mob, a UTech senior staff member confirmed.
Security officers brought the student to a small room by the entrance to the school where guards punched and slapped him several times.
