Pune: A 51-year-old teacher has been arrested by Pimpri-Chinchwad police for allegedly demanding sexual favours from a 15-year-old girl for approving her late submission of assignments. 

The incident took place about a month back in the teacher’s cabin. “I had gone to take his permission to submit my assignment. He told me that I was one month late and other students have already submitted their assignments. Then he told me to meet him alone at the end of the month. He asked me if I need money to go for sightseeing and whether I love him and would like to marry him. When I told him that I am his student, he questioned me whether love cannot happen between a student and teacher. Once I was getting down from school van, he caught my hand and asked me to wait. I asked him to leave my hand else warned him that I will shout, then he left my hand,” the girl stated in her complaint. 

Nigdi police has registered an FIR against the accused teacher for offence under section 354a (sexual harassment) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and relevant sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act.
