A-48-year old Secondary School teacher is in Police custody in Kasungu for allegedly defiling a 14-year old imbecile girl.
Kasungu Police Spokesperson Edwin Kaunda confirmed of the arrest in an interview and identified the suspect as Ernest Banda.
It is said that on June 28 the suspect invited the girl who was passing to his house to have a talk as both were members of Seventh Day Church.
While there, Banda took advantage of the situation and defiled the girl and warned her not to report the matter to anyone but the girl speared the beans to her mother.
An examination conducted at Kasungu District Hospital proved that the girl was really defiled.
Meanwhile Banda has denied the rape charges leveled against him.
