NILAI: Two teachers here decided to keep their Teachers’ Day celebration private and ended up being busted for alleged khalwat (close proximity).
The two, both married, were “caught in the act” at 2:30am on Saturday in a rented house during a raid by a group of religious officers from the Negri Sembilan Islamic Affairs Department.
“We’ve been receiving complaints from concerned parties about the couple’s indecent behaviour,” claimed a department spokesman.
“We observed them closely for three months before finally taking action. It was hard to nail them because they’ve been moving from one place to another,” he said, no pun intended.
The male teacher, in his 40s, is senior assistant (I) at a secondary school while the woman, in her 30s, is an arts teacher at another secondary school.
The couple were detained under Section 61, Amendment 2003 of the Negri Sembilan Syariah Criminal Offence Enactment. They were released on RM3,000 bail and a surety each.
The department’s investigation unit has set June 18 for the case to be mentioned again.
