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.
