A teacher in Osaka faces charges after she gave a colleague cream puffs laced with a powerful sedative.
According to police, the incident occurred in June 2012 at an elementary school in Osaka's Hirano Ward. Fuji TV reported Friday that a teacher in her 40s suffered a serious illness after she was given the cream puffs by her 60-year-old colleague. She fell unconscious and had to be taken to hospital.
The school has also filed a criminal complaint against the teacher, police said.
The suspect, who teaches music, was quoted by police as saying, "I thought the way she conducted her lessons was all wrong, and thought it would be great if she were no longer at the school."© Japan Today
