Woman teacher booked for molesting girl


The parents of a four-year-old girl lodged a police complaint against a woman teacher from a Kandivli school on Monday for molesting their child during school hours, reported Times of India. The police have booked the teacher under the stringent Pocso (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences) Act. No arrests have been made pending a preliminary probe. The child, who is in junior KG, complained to her parents after school on Monday that the teacher had touched her inappropriately. When the parents approached the school, the management told them the premises are entirely covered by cameras, except inside the washrooms. The police were summoned and the CCTV footage was shown to the parents as well as cops. "Nothing concrete has been found in the CCTV footage. It is not clear where the molestation occurred. We are quizzing school staffers and recording statements," said a police official. School authorities said they were cooperating in the probe. "For the safety of children, we have hired only female staff for the pre-primary section," said a school representative.
