Teacher booked for sexually harassing student in Santrampur | Vadodara News
A school teacher allegedly harassed her sexually after the prayer meet at the school. The girl reportedly narrated the incident to her family following which family members rushed to the school and raised the issue.
Both the Santrampur police and education department officials conducted extensive inquiries regarding the alleged incident, but no offence was registered till Thursday. The police had even shot letters to the family of the girl as well as the principal asking them to file a FIR. The family of the girl told the police that her father was out of station and they would file an offence only after he returned.
The offence registered on Thursday evening at the Santrampur police station by the principal Babu Damor states that the teacher Gaurav Patel used to harass the girl verbally. “The principal has filed the FIR based on whatever he was told. We are yet to record the statement of the girl,” said Santrampur police inspector M V Batul.
Patel is on the run and is yet to be apprehended by the police.
When asked about the delay in registration of the FIR, Batul said that it was done as soon as the complainant came forward. “The reason for the delay will have to be explained by the complainant to his department,” said Batul.
