CHENNAI: A teacher of a private school was arrested on Sunday for sexually abusing a boy at his house in Chengalpet. He was booked under Pocso Act.
Police said the accused, Karthik, 26, of Palur Melcheri of Chengalpet had been sexually abusing a Class IX student. Police said the boy, who hails from a poor family, could not attend online classes as his family could not afford a phone.
Karthik approached the boy’s mother and told her to send him to his house for studies. Police said he had been abusing the boy for three months and had shot videos with his mobile phone. He used to threaten the boy with the videos and continued to sexually abuse him. Scared, the boy did not inform his family.
On Saturday, the boy had trouble sleeping and had a panic attack, said police. When his mother inquired, he said that Karthik had been sexually abusing him at his house on the pretext of conducting classes.
The woman went to Karthik’s house but found that he was in the washroom taking a bath. She took the mobile phone and forwarded the videos to her friend and returned home. She filed a complaint with the Chengalpet police and also submitted the videos. The police produced Karthik before a local magistrate who sent him to judicial custody.
(The victim’s identity has not been revealed to protect her privacy as per Supreme court directives on cases related to sexual assault)
