Teacher attacked by mob for allegedly sexually harassing girl in AP
Visakhapatnam (AP): A school teacher was attacked by angry locals before being arrested by police on charges of sexually harassing a girl student here.
According to police, A Bhaskar Rao (33), a mathematics teacher at a private school in Kancharapalem area here, had been misbehaving with a class IX girl for the past few weeks.
Though the girl complained to the principal of the school, the authorities did not take any action against him, sources claimed.
