A monk has been entangled in serious scandal after a photo of him fondling a woman’s breasts went viral.
The Buddhist monk whose name was not mentioned had gone against the gender rules of his religion which prohibits monks from being alone with a woman let alone touch any body part.
The picture has generated several criticisms and rage in Thailand after the woman who was topless had her breasts groped by the aged monk.
Some religious leaders at a monastery in Oddar Meanchey in north-western Cambodia admitted that the monk was one of their members although they refuted claims that he was fondling a woman despite the obvious viral picture.
The religious leaders maintained that it was a man who had started hormone replacement therapy, according to Mirror UK.
They also claimed that he was only performing charm-boosting prayer that involves putting his hand above the heart of the devotee.
