Two more cases of molestation against Goan teacher



Panaji: Two more cases of molestation were Monday reported against a teacher from Shiroda village, who is presently under arrest for molesting a 14-year-old girl.

Ponda police, which is investigating the case, received two more complaints from a parent, who has alleged that both his daughters, who were taught by the accused, were molested.

Yogesh Khandeparkar was arrested last week after an NGO alleged that he had molested a 14 year old girl student.

Police said the parents of both the sisters aged 12 and 15 filed a complaint stating that the accused had been molesting their daughter since July 2012 on a regular basis.

Police Inspector Jivba Dalvi said a case against section 354 of Indian Penal Code and section 8 of Goa Children’s Act has been registered against the accused.
