Hyderabad: The police have arrested a madrassa teacher who was accused of sodomizing a minor boy in the Santosh Nagar area of Telangana’s Hyderabad.
“A 14-year-old was sodomised by the Madrassa teacher. After the victim’s family filed a complaint, the case was booked against him under the relevant sections of POCSO,” informed the police official.
A 21-year-old teacher sodomized a student who is 14 years old. The police have booked the teacher and sent him to the judicial custody.
Sodomy is an act of performing unnatural or abnormal sexual intercourse on a person, which can be anal or oral in nature.
Meanwhile, on August 31, the Uttar Pradesh government ordered to conduct a survey of unrecognised madrassas to know if the students are receiving basic facilities.
However, Minister of State for Minority Affairs Danish Azad Ansari stated that the survey will be conducted in line with the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights.
It will ascertain the number of students, teachers, curriculum and affiliation with any non-government organisation of these institutions.
To conduct the survey, a team will be formed of top officials including Sub Divisional Magistrate (SDM), Basic Shiksha Adhikari (BSA) and District Minority Officers.
