Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh:
A teacher of an inter college here has been booked for allegedly molesting a minor student belonging to the scheduled caste, police said on Monday.
Three teams have been formed to arrest the missing accused, they added.
According to police, a 13-year-old Dalit student of Class 7 had gone to the inter-college to take a test on September 4, when Naresh Pal Gangwar allegedly called her to his room, locked it from inside and harassed her.
When the girl resisted, the accused thrashed her. He also allegedly threatened her that he would fail her in the test if she told anyone about the incident and insulted her with casteist remarks, the police said.
