The incident had allegedly occurred on November 1. Police said the female teacher had allegedly been waiting at the school's staff room as she could not make her way home due to heavy rain. It is alleged that the suspect held the victim by force and kissed her.

The suspect is due to be produced before the Anamaduwa Magistrate's Court.
