Assam: School teacher arrested in Morigaon on suspicion of sexual abuse of minors

The teacher was reportedly identified as Bhaben Nath, who was allegedly sexually harassed by 8th grade students.

Victims’ families and locals claim that eggplants have been committing this vicious crime since last year.

The victim’s family filed a complaint against the perpetrator, and the school teacher was subsequently arrested on the afternoon of May 12 based on the complaint.

Police have announced that Nath is currently being cross-examined and further legal proceedings will begin shortly.

Earlier, by official order, Dr Surajit Bhagawati, Principal of ADP College in Nagaon, was immediately suspended on April 14 by Assam DK Mili, Director of Higher Education.

The authorities have filed proceedings based on complaints filed by one contract teacher and others at the university. Importantly, the order also required him not to leave headquarters without the prior permission of the authorities concerned.
