Madrassa teacher held for sodomising student
Faizabad, Uttar Pradesh: A `madrassa` (seminary) teacher here has been arrested for allegedly sodomising a 13-year-old student after holding him captive for three days, police said Wednesday.
Shakib Khan, 28, employed at the Islamia Ahle-Sunnat seminary in Inayatnagar locality, was arrested late Tuesday after the student managed to escape and approach the locals, who informed police about the teacher`s misdeeds.
"Acting on the compliant of the student, who hails from Kolkata, we carried out a preliminary enquiry, following which the teacher was arrested," police inspector Akhilesh Pandey told reporters in Faizabad, some 130 km from Lucknow.
"A detailed enquiry is under way to check if other students in the seminary were also being harassed by Khan. The seminary management officials and teachers are being interrogated in this regard," he added.
Khan had held the student captive since Sunday in his room on the seminary campus.
