BETUL (Madhya Pradesh): The primary school teacher who allegedly
forced girl students to dance in a closed classroom under the
influence of alcohol was on Tuesday arrested by the police.
A case was registered against Mahesh Malvi, a teacher at a government
primary school at Deshgaon in the SC/ST Police Station of the district
following a complaint lodged by the parents of the girls. He was
arrested today and produced in the court of Judicial Magistrate First
Class, Adesh Kumar Malvi, who remanded him in jail, police said.
He has been booked under sections 294, 323, 506 and 509 of the IPC and
Section 3(1)10 of SC/ST Act, they said. Earlier, on a complaint by
children and their parents, District Education Officer, S S Thakur had
suspended Malvi and also initiated a departmental inquiry against him.
Malvi was posted as assistant teacher at Government Primary School,
Deogaon where he allegedly forced the girls to dance in a closed room
under the influence of alcohol and also ordered a boy to fetch a
liquor bottle for him.
The incident came to light on January 23 when the girls complained to
Betul Collector, Chandra Shekhar Borkar. Malvi, however, has denied
that he indulged in such acts arguing that a fellow teacher and few
villagers had conspired against him.
