Mar 10, 2015 15:00 IST

German Professor Annette G Beck-Sickinger was in news as on 9 March 2015 she rejected an Indian student’s internship request citing rape problem in India.  She is a professor of biochemistry at Leipzig University in Free State of Saxony.

She rejected the internship application of the student, saying she does not accept any Indian male student who was seeking biochemistry internship in one of the oldest universities of Germany. In the rejection, she said that she has heard a lot about the rape problem in India and she cannot support it.

Her action prompted a sharp reaction from the German Ambassador in Delhi Michael Steiner who condemned the incident saying India is not a country of rapists.
