Fiance: Abductors concocted plan about teacher's alleged sexual affair with 15-year-old

Convinced that Keston Mahabir’s abductors had concocted a ploy to discredit him, fiance Shereeza Mohammed has come out in his defence, saying he was never sexually involved with his teenaged student.

In an interview with the T&T Guardian, Mohammed said 26-year-old Mahabir was always concerned about upholding his good name and would never engage in such activity. 

Saying there was no way the teacher would ever put himself with a 15-year-old, Mohammed said: “If that was the case I want to know how that happened because I knew all his whereabouts.”
