A UNIVERSITY student in Perlis claimed she allowed a lecturer to molest her because she was afraid he would fail her in the subject he was teaching, reported Sinar Harian.
The 20-year-old lodged a police report in Arau after she had sat for her examinations last month.
She told the police that she and two classmates had gone to the lecturer’s office for revision on March 28.
The lecturer, in his 40s, had sat next to her and had suddenly touched her breasts.
He had also stroked her leg and had moved his hand all the way up to her chest several times, according to her report.
She said she was shocked and had tried to make him stop but he would not.
As the student was worried the lecturer would fail her and because the examinations were just around the corner, she had allowed him to go on.
Perlis police chief Datuk Zull Aznam Haron had confirmed to the paper that the student had lodged a report against the lecturer.
“The case is under investigation. Several statements have been taken,” he said.
