A male Sri Lankan Tamil teacher has appeared in court accused of sexual assault with a teenage girl. Mr Bavan from London was employed as a private tutor at the time he committed the offence with the student, who was under 18, between January 2017 and May 2017.
However Mr Bavan denied the charges but was subsequently found guilty by a jury. Prosecutors allege the private tutor touched the girl without consent several times over the four month period.
Mr Bavan appeared at Inner London Crown Court today. He denied sexual assault and sexual activity with the female student. The charges are said to relate to multiple incidents.
Mr Bavan was also given restrictions and cannot undertake any activity or employment which is likely to at some time allow him unsupervised contact with anyone under the age of 18.
