Madrasa teacher arrested for sexually assaulting minor boy

A 34-year-old teacher at a madrasa was arrested by the Thalaghattapura police on charges of sexually assaulting a minor boy (12) for the past one year.

The suspect, Mohammed Zubair, is a resident of Avalahalli in South Bengaluru and was teaching Arabic at the madrasa for the past four and a half years.

Zubair was sent for medical examination and the police are conducting further investigations into the case. A senior police officer said the victim was being sent to the madrasa since last year after he failed the class IV exams. There are 60 students at the madrasa.

The victim told the police that Zubair sexually assaulted him ever since he joined the madrasa.

Zubair threatened the victim of dire consequences if he revealed this to anyone.

The victim recently fell ill and was sent to his grandmothers house in Shivajinagar to recuperate. During his stay here, the victim narrated his plight to his grandmother.

The victims father, a mechanic in Shivajinagar, then filed a complaint.

The police have booked Zubair under POCSO Act and various other sections of the Indian Penal Code. The suspect was produced before the magistrate and later remanded to judicial custody.

Zubair has denied all the charges and even the management of the madrasa denied the allegations made by the victim and his parents.
