Gorakhpur: A school principal and three others were arrested by Police in Maharajganj town for leaking videos of girl students in toilets on social media.
The incident came to light after a large number of students and parents reached the school in protest of the toilet videos leaked on social media, PTI reported.
“This morning, students along with their guardians protested against the videos of girls toilet in the school,” ASP, Maharajganj, Ashutosh Shukla said.
The woman principal-cum-owner, her brother along with two teachers were arrested by the Maharajganj Police.
The Police has lodged a case against the four accused under various relevant sections of the IT Act and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, an official said.
“During initial investigation it was found that the principal’s brother had installed the camera in the girls toilet five-six months back. Two teachers of the school discovered it and posted the videos on the social media. The videos were not noticed by many. The administration ousted them from the school and they again posted the videos on social media,” the ASP added.
However, the school principal has claimed she was not involved in the crime.
“I am the principal of the school for the last 20 years and I have a good reputation. I don’t know anything about the hidden camera and the videos could be fake. Anyway, the school management will fully cooperate in finding the real culprits,” she said.
