A teacher of a government school in Tamil Nadu was arrested for sexually harassing a girl student while she was writing an exam, reports said Friday. The accused, identified as one Murugesan, worked in the English department at Hajyar Muhammad Yusuf government school in Srirangam.

The student said Murugesan behaved inappropriately with her when he came to class for invigilation. She went home and informed her parents, which prompted a wave of outrage at the school gates. A crowd of locals gathered to protest the harassment incident, as per a report.

Following an inquiry by school authorities and the police who questioned the complainant as well as other students, Murugesan was taken into custody. He has been charged under relevant sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.

Over the past many months, several such instances of sexual harassment on school campuses have surfaced from the state of Tamil Nadu. In 2021, a wave of #MeToo swept schools with students and alumni both raising complaints of inappropriate behaviours on part of their teachers.

In June last year, the teacher of a school in Ramanathapuram district was arrested following a complaint by a student of class nine. She claimed the man used to take numbers from students and make advances at them, threatening to lower their scores or fail them if they complained. Read here.

The Scripture Union and PSBB school harassment cases are among the other major cases of their kind to come to light in recent times from Chennai.
