KOLKATA, 25 JUNE: The principal of a private school in east Kolkata was arrested today on charges of molesting a class XII student of his school.
Police said the accused, Bernard Shaw Halder, was arrested from his school this afternoon. A senior police officer said the victim alleged that the principal harassed her in his office after school hours today. The girl had to stay back even after the school gave over as she used to attend private tuition in the school itself. Today, around 2.15 p.m. the principal summoned the girl to his office, where he allegedly misbehaved with the girl and molested her.
The girl managed to flee and narrated the incident to her father, who came to pick her up from school. The victim and her father went to the local police station straight from the school and lodged a complaint.
