Hyderabad: Two school teachers were on Wednesday taken into custody on charges of sexually harassing girl students at a Zilla Parishad school in Vishakhapatnam district of Andhra Pradesh, police said.

The two teachers - Shankar Rao (Social Studies) and Satya Babu (Physical Education) at Godicherla ZP high school in Nakpalli mandal of Visakhapatnam district, allegedly subjected the girl students to sexual harassment by asking them to kiss, touch and by making obscene gestures, they said.

After learning about the sexual harassment, the kin of the girls and villagers went to the school today and argued with the teachers on the incident. Then, police intervened and took both the teachers into custody for questioning.

The victims of the alleged sexual harassment, who are ninth-standard girl students, informed to their parents on the incident and also complained to the police on the incident today, a senior police officer told PTI over phone.

It seems several girls were sexually harassed by the two teachers for the past many days, but they (girls) reported on the incident only today, the police officer said.

According to one victim, one of the teachers asked her to come to his house and allegedly made obscene gestures and grabbed her, however, she managed to free herself from his clutches and ran away, the police officer said.
