She sought help from her ITE counsellor in dealing with her personal problems last year, but they ended up becoming sexually intimate.

Chiu Ka Ying, who was 16 at the time, then alleged to her school that her Life Skills lecturer, Mr Michael Tay Jau Jen, 36, had molested her. Mr Tay later told investigators that it was consensual.

The ITE’s investigation report said the allegations could not be confirmed, but it found that Mr Tay had behaved unprofessionally.

About a month later, still haunted by the incident, the girl jumped to her death from the sixth storey of a building at ITE College East at Simei Avenue.

These details were revealed in a coroner's inquiry yesterday into Ka Ying's death.


So what it was consensual? She was just 16!
