Teacher arrested for molesting nine-year-old girl
Hyderabad: A private school teacher was on Wednesday arrested for allegedly outraging the modesty of a third standard girl student of the school at Nizampet in Hyderabad, police said.

The accused Antony Xavier, who works as a science teacher in the school, allegedly lured the nine-year-old girl to his room (located near the school) yesterday and allegedly kissed and touched her private parts, they said.

The victim complained to her mother of pain in her private parts this morning, a police officer said quoting a complaint lodged by the girl's parents with the Kukatpally Police here.

Earlier, angered over the incident, the girl's father along with locals went to the school and held a demonstration demanding suspension of the teacher. They also "manhandled" the teacher and later handed him over to the police.

"Following the complaint, we registered a case of outrage of modesty against Xavier and arrested him," the police said.
