A head teacher charged with indecent assault was granted bail by the Tavua Magistrates Court yesterday.

He is charged with one count of indecent assault.

The alleged incident was committed at the head teacher’s   quarters in September last year.

Police prosecutor, Arti Chand, had submitted that the accused be bailed with strict conditions.

Defence lawyer, Jitendra Reddy had applied for bail on the grounds that his client pleaded not guilty to the charge and that there was not enough evidence to prove him guilty.

Tavua Magistrate Samuela Qica granted the accused bail in the sum of $500 bond on his own recognition with surety, the school manager.

The accused has been ordered to report to the Tavua Police Station on Fridays.

The case was adjourned to June 5 for prosecution to file full disclosures.
