Teacher arrested for allegedly molesting eight-year-old girl in Miri
MIRI: The police have detained a primary school teacher in Batu Niah for allegedly molesting an eight-year-old Standard Two schoolgirl.
Sarawak CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Dev Kumar said the suspect, who is in his 40s, was picked up at the compound of the Miri police station at 3.30 pm on Tuesday.
"It is believed that the girl had been continually molested since she was in Standard One," he said in a statement.
SAC Dev said the alleged incident came to light when the victim told her 26-year-old mother that the suspect had been allegedly molesting her in the classroom behind the teacher's desk, which led to a police report being lodged this month. â" BernamaRelated NewsSource: Google News
