Teacher caught kissing lady teacher

A teacher in charge of sports at a leading boys school in Colombo was charged before Colombo Fort Magistrate of having forcibly kissed the lady music teacher of the same school.

The prosecution and defence witnesses today concluded their evidence in connection with the case filed against the teacher who was charged with sexual harassment after he kissed the lady teacher without her consent.  

The lady music teacher in her complaint to police said she was sexually harassed by the teacher in charge of sports on March 28, 2011.

Giving evidence in connection with the incident, the accused denied the charges levelled against him and told Court that the complainant had a personal animosity towards him. The accused told Court that he was the teacher in charge of the school’s cricket and rugby teams and had won the heart of the principal and the students.

The accused who gave evidence before Colombo Fort Magistrate Thilina Gamage said the lady teacher who made a complaint against him had gone abroad with a group of students even without informing the school principal. The accused said he had provided names of the students who took part in the foreign tour accompanied by the music teacher and this had resulted in some kind of personal animosity.(Lakmal Sooriyagoda)

    Music teacher must have tempted sports teacher with her body language to put the man into trouble.

    Kissing is a such beautiful thing in life, so why do these people do it forcibly? If it is done forcibly - it is not rather a kiss.

    This is like saying a woman asked to be raped by the way she was dressed.

    That is why our able Minister of Education is so strict with teachers rather than students!

    ShanD Friday, 07 June 2013 03:50 AM

    It's not the first time this teacher(sports) had done some thing like this. He should be sacked from the school

    Mita Friday, 07 June 2013 09:00 AM

    This must have happened in front of others, so she got ashamed. If in private she may have excused him or accepted him.

    I have to change my name here yet again.

    Why did she not just slap him?

    This news report is not worthy of being put on line.

    durachrya Thursday, 06 June 2013 04:13 PM

    Laminate ! Where r u living in this world or another world. These are common things happening in any country and don't bring dis respect to the country. You blame this also on government. .

    Instead lets bring the grass root of this country to understand what education is and real education to the rural masses. 90% of the problems will be solved.

    Silva de Mervin Thursday, 06 June 2013 04:15 PM

    The music teachers are always become attractive to their opposite counterpart.

    Same story everywhere!!!

    indiraimurray Thursday, 06 June 2013 04:13 PM

    should not believe the lady in this situation. what he said could be the truth.

    Buddhika Thursday, 06 June 2013 04:16 PM

    I think the people who comment have forgotten that this is not a mere kiss between consenting adults (then it won't anyway be news) but this is sexual harassment!!!

    To kiss a miss is a comedy;
    To miss a kiss is a tragedy.
