Chandigarh, July 9

The UT police have arrested the suspended vice-principal of a government school for allegedly sexually harassing a teacher. The accused was suspended by the Education Department in June after allegations were levelled against him.

The police arrested the accused on July 7 and produced him in the court next day. The court sent him to judicial custody.

A case under Sections 354, 354-A, 509 and 506 of the IPC was registered against him at the Sector 11 police station.

A computer instructor at a government school had alleged that the accused had tried to touch her without her consent and engaged in objectionable talks with her.

As per the allegations, the accused had also tried to convince the complainant to come to his place in the absence of his family. It was alleged that this had happened during the ongoing summer vacation when the vice-principal was in charge in the absence of the school principal.

The Education Department had last month also constituted a four-member fact-finding committee under the chairmanship of the District Education Officer (DEO) to probe the matter.
