A 20-year-old tertiary student who was allegedly found inside a school’s washroom for girls was yesterday instructed to meet his lawyer.

The court was informed that Mr Kumar was allegedly inside the washroom with a female student for hours. A teacher from the school reported the matter to police.

Mr Kumar had pleaded guilty to the charge.

The alleged incident took place on October 26 last year.
