AYU, a 32-year-old teacher in a school in Bangsar suffers from trauma, vomiting spells and even fainted once in school after she became the target of sexual advances by a male colleague, reported Harian Metro.

Her ordeal started when the male teacher, in his 50s, started making advances and sending her sexually explicit SMSes three years ago, but the last straw was when the man grabbed her private part on April 30.

Ayu said some of her colleagues seemed to blame her for the incident and this caused her to become morose and depressed until one day she fainted in school.

She has lodged a police report on the incident and requested for a transfer.

The newspaper understood that the school tried to resolve the matter by asking the male teacher to apologise.
