The Army has launched an investigation after a senior male cadet of the Korea Military Academy sexually assaulted a junior female cadet during an academy festival.
A military official said that the male cadet sexually assaulted the female cadet after they attended a lunch hosted by a professor last Wednesday. Both cadets were under the influence of alcohol.
The military official said this is the first sexual abuse case to emerge in the prestigious military school.
The Army has been investigating the male cadet since his arrest, and has also formed a joint investigation team comprising military police and inspection officials to probe the academy.
