NAVI MUMBAI: A 44-year-old tutor was arrested by the Koparkhairane police for allegedely sexually assaulting one of his students in October 2019—when she was 17 years old. The girl approached the police on October 8 this year, after the tutor sexually assaulted her again in February, and threatened to post obscene photos and videos of her on social media.
The girl used to go the accused’s private tuition classes in Koparkhairane for her HSC board exam studies, said police inspector Kavita Sutar. “In October last year, the accused allegedly took the girl to his house in Koparkhairane under the pretext of giving her notes. At his residence, he sexually assaulted her. He threatened the girl, which is why she did not tell her parents about the incident. In February again, he forcibly took the girl to his house and sexually assaulted her. The girl did not tell her parents as she was appearing for board exams then,” said Sutar.
According to the complaint filed, when the girl stopped going to the accused’s classes, he started sending her obscene messages on her cellphone. In September, the tutor started threatening her, by saying that he had obscene photos and videos of her. He said he would post them on social media and make them ‘viral’.
Unable to bear the mental torture and humiliation, the girl finally told her parents, who then took her to the Koparkhairane police station on Wednesday and lodged a complaint. Accordingly, an FIR under the IPC and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (Pocso) Act was registered against the accused tutor. He wasarrested the next day, and remanded to police custody till October 13.
