New York University has reportedly booted a blind Chinese political activist under pressure from China over a deal to build a new campus in Shanghai, according to the New York Post.

Chen Guangcheng has been studying at the university since May 2012, when he made a dramatic escape from house arrest in China's Shandong province to the U.S. Embassy in Beijing.
