The Kanjurarg police have arrested a 33-year-old tuition teacher on Wednesday for allegedly raping his own student on Tuesday afternoon.
The 11-year-old victim used to study Maths from the identified accused Satish Kumar Sharma since the past five months.
According to Rahim Sheikh, senior police inspector of Kanjurmarg, the victim's mother approached the police after her daughter narrated the entire story to her about her teacher's act.
On Tuesday afternoon when the victim as went to attend her tuition classes her teacher, who stayed alone asked her to wait after classes timings for extra lectures. When all the students went home at around 3.30 pm Sharma started misbehaving with the girl. When she tried to retaliate Sharma showed her obscene photos and magazines to convince her and later he raped her.
The girl entered home scared to death. Her mother came to know about the whole incident from her and immediately after that rushed to the police station.
"When we went to Sharma's apartment to arrest him he had fled but later after midnight we nabbed him. We have arrested Sharma on charges of rape under section 376 and 354 IPC. There were only girls studying in Sharma's tuition classes but on Tuesday he asked only the victim to wait. We are trying to find out whether Sharma has done such kind of acts with other girls too or the girl was his first 'victim'," said Sheikh.
"The accused has been remanded to police custody till February 20," added Sheikh.
The police however declined to give the address or the contact number of the victim as it said the matter was highly sensitive.
