An expelled Cambridge University student has been sentenced to a year in jail after repeatedly stalking a fellow undergraduate.
The two were both studying at King's College, Cambridge
Azeem Malik, 22, of Romford, Essex, who was a maths student at King's College, was jailed for harassing fourth-year physics student Natalie Soule, also 22.
Cambridge Magistrates' Court heard the former student regularly let himself into Miss Soule's room and made attempts to contact her.
Farzana Akram, prosecuting said: "It involved going to the property and making himself a nuisance, making mobile phone calls and on some occasions, bursting into her room and lying on the bed."
Malik has three times breached a restraining order demanding he stay away from the physics student and has already spent six weeks behind bars.
The last incidents began just six days after he was freed from jail in January.
In mitigation, his lawyer, Orla Daly said that he visited Miss Soule to explain he had been released from custody.
She added: "He did not want her to be frightened.
It is the view of the bench that you have very little insight and very little remorse in what you have done
Magistrates' chairman Dr Colin Lattimore
"He has never been a physical threat to Miss Soule. He is appalled that somebody might think he might harm her."
She told the court Malik had to leave Cambridge University because of his actions.
In sentencing Malik to six months consecutively for each breach of his restraining order, bench chairman Dr Colin Lattimore said they were crimes of "extreme" disobedience.
He said: "The effect on the victim has been considerable. Your council argued you were not a physical threat but you were quite clearly a psychological threat.
"And it is the view of the bench that you have very little insight and very little remorse in what you have done."
Malik was ordered to pay Miss Soule £500 compensation and his three-year restraining order continued.
