Assam teacher arrested for sharing groping pictures with students

BHOPAL: An Assam teacher who posted objectionable photographed with minor student on social media was arrested by police, reports Indian Express.

The male teacher identified as Faizuddin Laskar of Model High School in Katlicherra town of Assam’s Hailakandi district posted obscene picture of him groping, touching and hugging the female student inside a classroom.

Pranab Jyoti Goswami, the Police Superintendent of Hailakandi district confirms the arrest and said the teacher was booked under Section 192 of the IPC, Section 67 of the IT Act and Section 8 of POCSO for this cringey act.

The obscene photos were taken about 8 to 10 months ago but went instantly viral after the man posted it online sparking a social media outrage.

“The man has admitted to the act, and said that he had himself asked another girl of the same class to take several photographs where he was holding the victim girl in various positions. Faizuddin Laskar also admitted that while he had proposed to marry the girl, her parents fixed her marriage with another person. Following that he had tried to use the photographs to break that marriage by engaging another man to show the photographs to the groom’s parents, but the other person apparently did not do so,” SP Goswami told The Indian Express.
