Seoul - A South Korean court has sentenced a former university professor for 12 years in prison for habitually beating his former pupil and forcing him to eat human faeces and drink urine.

The Suwon District Court said on Thursday that three other people were sentenced to three to six years in prison for participating in the grotesque abuse that went on for more than two years.

Police said the former professor began abusing the victim, one of his former students, after hiring him at a non-profit organisation he ran in 2013.
