A government schoolteacher in Uttar Pradesh’s Kannauj has been arrested for allegedly stripping a Class 8 student on the pretext of taking her measurements for a uniform.

The incident came to fore on Monday after the parents of the victim registered a complaint with the police.

The father of the victim alleged that the teacher asked her daughter to remove all her clothes including her garments.

“On the first day, my daughter told her mother that a teacher asked her to take off all the clothes, including her garments, saying that he needs measurement for the uniform. The girl started crying after this while the teacher asked her to not tell this to anyone,” said the father.

The allegations have been confirmed by other students of the school, said the police.
