Telangana: Govt school headmaster booked for misbehaving with girl students

Hyderabad: A 57-year-old headmaster of a government school in Khammam district, about 300 kms from here, has been booked under POCSO Act for “misbehaving” with girl students, police said Tuesday. A group of students accused B Shanker Reddy, headmaster of Zilla Parishad High School (ZPHS) in that district of “misbehaving” with them, following which the District Educational Officer had Monday ordered a probe into the matter by a team comprising district officials and police.

After holding an inquiry with the students, a case under relevant sections of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act was registered against the Headmaster, who is absconding, an official told PTI. Meanwhile, members of a student organisation and some students of the school staged a demonstration demanding stern action against the accused.
