Now behind bars, this teacher will not forget his lesson for a lifetime.
Ishwar Rajput (22), a teacher with a municipal school, was arrested on Monday evening for allegedly molesting and threatening a Class 7 student over the past two months.
“Rajput, who hails from Dhule district, was teaching at Nehru Nagar civic school for the last two months where the girl studied,” said Additional Commissioner of Police (East Region) Ritesh Kumar. “He has been booked for molestation and criminal intimidation.”
He was arrested following a complaint by the parents of the 12-year-old victim.
“On Sunday, the girl had gone out when Rajput, who was in an autorickshaw, pulled her into the vehicle,” the police said.
“He took the girl to an desolate spot on one of the platforms at Bhandup station and molested her there,” said Senior Inspector R.S. Wakale, adding that Rajput warned the victim with dire consequences if she informed anybody about it.
As per the police complaint, the girl somehow managed to escape from her captor’s clutches and returned home.
She was visibly in a state of shock. Her mother who found something amiss had to persistently question the girl before she broke down and narrated what had happened.
“She revealed that for two months Rajput had been misbehaving with her at school<” stated the victim’s father in his complaint to the police.
The police said that Rajput wanted to marry the girl.
“A fortnight ago, he had even forcefully barged into the victim’s house in Bhandup when her parents were away. He tried to molest her at that time but beat a hasty retreat after the child raised an alarm.”
