- A woman teacher has been arrested for sexually assaulting a boy who used to take tuitions from her.
- The teacher had given a SIM card to the boy through which she stayed in touch with him.
The teacher was produced in the Chandigarh district court on Thursday and sent to judicial custody. The boy, a student of class X, lives in the same locality as the teacher.
Police officials have booked the teacher under Section 6 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses (POCSO) Act for aggravated penetrative sexual assault after receiving a complaint from the parents.
Dr Sangeeta Jund, project manager of Child Helpline, said that when they counselled the boy they realised that the teacher was not only aggressive with him but was also extremely possessive about him. As he slowly opened up to the counsellors, he gave details of the abuse he was facing.

The case first came to light on May 22 when the parents approached the teacher to cancel the tuition classes as the boy’s grades were not improving.
Counsellors from Child Helpline were also called in and they discovered that the boy was being sexually abused. The woman had given a SIM card to the boy through which she stayed in touch with him. Jund said, “The teacher was sexually assaulting the boy and also sending him emotional text messages.”
The teacher was produced in the Chandigarh district court on Thursday that had sent to judicial custody.
