Parents whose children witnessed this complained to local officials on January 24, after which he was suspended. Mr Malviya has also been accused by some children of sending a student to bring him a bottle of alcohol from a nearby shop.
The accused teacher says he is being falsely implicated. " The lady teacher and the villagers are accusing me so that I quit from the job," Mr Malviya said.
In 2009, Mr Malviya was accused of rape but it's not clear if a police case was registered against him. He was suspended and had been reinstated a few months ago.
