Video of a mainland secondary school teacher attempting to kiss a struggling female pupil in his office has caused an outrage among internet users, state media Xinhua reports.

The footage uploaded to the internet shows a male teacher at Liangjiang Secondary School in Chongqing holding the teenager by the waist and kissing her repeatedly as she attempts to resist. The two were standing by a window in the teacher’s fluorescent-lit office at night.

The teacher has been sacked and the principal is being held accountable. The Yubei district government in Chongqing has ordered the local education board to investigate the incident.

A government official confirmed the incident, saying the teacher, surnamed Xu, had severely violated teachers’ professional conduct.

Liangjiang Secondary School is regarded as one of the top schools in the municipality.
