An Indian-origin student at a US university has been charged with illegally filming his roommate having sex and posting the images on internet, a report said on Thursday.

Dharun Ravi of Rutgers University has been charged by the Middlesex county prosecutor’s office with invasion of privacy for allegedly placing a camera inside the victim’s dorm room, New York Post said.

The victim allegedly committed suicide after learning that images of him with a man had been streamed on the Internet. Ravi and another student used the camera to transmit a live image, said the prosecutor.
