Following a spate of sexual abuse cases by teachers , the Jaffna High Court Judge Illancheliyan strongly warned that teachers who indulge in sexual abuse of girl students. Sexually abusing girl students is a serious offence. A teacher committing it is a worst offence. Therefore any teacher who indulge in this crime will be put behind bars for more than ten years
Safe guarding a teacher who had committed this is also an offence. Further, action also will be taken against Officers who conduct disciplinary inquiries without reporting the offence to the Police. Penal code section 365 allows for sentencing any person who commit sexual offence on a girl student or girls under 16 years of age, to more than 10 years prison sentence, said he.
He was commenting on controlling anti- social activities during a bail application case.
