GUWAHATI: The sports teacher of Shrimanta Shankar Academy Senior Secondary School, Guwahati, Bhabesh Das has been arrested under POCSO Act for sexually harassing a third standard girl child.
According to the parents, the incident occurred on March 2019, after which the child showed abnormal behaviour.
Unable to perceive the root cause of the problem, the parents sought psychiatric help for their child here in the city but it failed to yield any result. As such, they took her to Banglore and after 15 sessions, the young child confessed to the horrors that she was subjected to. The minor stated that she was shoved into a bathroom by Bhabesh Das, who then did unspeakable things to her.
As per sources, on June 12 the parents along with a group of guardians went to meet the principal of the institute who was reluctant to greet them but later assured that the school would make a formal enquiry into the matter. However, the principal lodged an FIR against the parents at Dispur police station instead that very day. The parents lodged a complaint the next day submitting a video of the minor speaking about the details of the horrific incident that she was subjected to, which resulted in the swift arrest of Bhabesh Das.
