Pune: The principal of a convent school here was booked for allegedly showing a pornographic video to a 14-year-old boy, Pune police said Sunday.

A woman counsellor, who was aware of the incident but asked the victim to remain silent, has also been booked, an official said.

Both the accused are at large and efforts were on to nab them, the Wanwadi police station official informed.

"The incident took place in March this year. The principal had sexually harassed the boy by showing him a porn video. The boy had complained about the incident to the lady school counsellor," the official said.

The counsellor, however, asked the student to keep mum on the issue, possibly out of fear that she would lose her job if she spoke against the principal, the official said.

"The family of the victim also chose to remain silent fearing that his education will be hampered. Police got hint of the incident through its sources and approached the school," the official said.

He said that a case had been registered against the school principal and counsellor under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
