Officials in the southern province of An Giang on Tuesday said they have rebuked a local teacher after a photo emerged online showing him molesting a 14-year-old student.
The man, who teaches Physics at Nguyen Trai Secondary School, has also apologized to the girl and her family, officials confirmed.
Earlier this month, the student posted a photo on her Facebook, accusing the teacher of sexually abusing her during an extra class at his house.
The picture was taken by one of her classmates, the girl said, adding that she had asked the friend for help after being abused by the teacher several times.

The girl’s mother said she was shocked.
“My daughter kept telling me that the teacher abused her, but I didn't take her seriously,” the mother told local media.
“I regret not believing her."
No investigation has been announced.
