LMV teacher responds to sexual abuse allegations by former students
Feb 12, 2019-
I have a serious concern on the recent news about Lalitpur Madhyamik Vidhyalaya (‘Two more teachers at Lalitpur Madhyamik Vidhyalaya accused of sexual abuse by former student’, Page 1,February 5, 2019) in your esteemed newspaper, The Kathmandu Post. My serious concern is that the news has appeared in your credible newspaper as a surprise—in an organised way—with malevolent intention to damage and attack teachers by defaming me on a baseless fictitious, hypothetical, and imaginary allegation of sexual abuse that has damaged my academic professionalism, public reputation, and my life. I have been highly devoted to my profession and have never left any room for complaints. I have never been engaged in any mis-behavioural activities in my entire life. No testimonials provided by your paper indicate that the allegations are based on facts. But still, you have forcefully tried to convict an innocent person who has nothing to do with that school. Hence, the news in The Kathmandu Post clearly gives the impression that the content of the news is based on false, baseless and made up allegations. Therefore, I strongly deny the charges written against me by your paper.
