A college teacher was on Saturday arrested for allegedly removing the veil covering the face of a girl student, sparking strong protests in Ranchi.

Trouble started when a local newspaper published the photographs in sequence showing how the teacher removed the girl's veil to identify her during a students' protest on Friday demanding that they be allowed to fill up forms for intermediate examinations.

The photos sparked off protests on the arterial Main Road here following which police forces were rushed to maintain law and order.

Senior Superintendent of Police Praveen Kumar Singh too rushed to the spot to control the situation.

When contacted, the college authorities refused to make any comments but said the media had played up the matter.
