Mangaluru: Primary School Teacher Booked under POCSO for Sexual Abuse of Male Student

Mangaluru: Dolphy Sequeira (33), a resident of Chembugudde and working as a teacher of Social Science and English in a private school at Babbukatte for the last two years, has been arrested by the Ullal police on receipt of a complaint in a serious case of sexual demeanour.

He has been accused of sexually abusing a 12-year-old male student in the project room where there is no CCTV surveillance.

The student complained to the parents, who filed a complaint in the Ullal police station. They have booked him under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO Act) 2012.

He might have been subjected to the boy to exploitation for quite some time and the boy may have hesitated to inform the parents out of fear of the teacher, said the police.

In the meantime, the school management committee has suspended Sequeira from service. An enquiry team consisting of teachers and parents has been constituted to study the whole matter for further action.
