ITE student jumps to her death after being allegedly molested by school counselor
Posted by temasektimes on September 11, 2012
She sought help from her Life Skills lecturer, Mr Michael Tay Jau Jen in dealing with her personal problems last year, but they ended up being sexually intimate.
Though she lodged a complaint to her school, no action was taken against Tay who told investigators that it was consensual.
The ITE’s investigation report said the allegations could not be confirmed, but it found that Tay had behaved unprofessionally.
However, the girl was so traumatized by the incident that she jumped to her death from the sixth storey of a building at ITE College East at Simei Avenue a month later.
These details were revealed in a coroner’s inquiry yesterday into Ka Ying’s death.
