A female tuition teacher and her male friend were arrested under the Prevention of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO Act) after he allegedly sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl, who was attending the woman’s classes in T Nagar.
According to the complaint, the victim’s family had claimed that the duo used to force her to be intimate with a male student in the tuition class and the male suspect allegedly shot videos of it.
“He noticed the teenagers, who were close to each other, and encouraged them to be intimate and videographed them secretly. He would then show it to the girls to blackmail and sexually exploit them,” said the police officers investigating the case.
They added that the male suspect allegedly threatened to release the videos on the internet if the victims told about it to anyone and forced them to have sex with him. Sources also indicated that the accused could have taken the victims to places other than the tuition centre and sexually exploited them.
The police further added that the woman ran a home tuition for students studying in Class 10 and 12 and the man, who is married, resided opposite her house. He often visited her house. The two are believed to be in a relationship.
Police said that they would further investigate how many other students were exploited by the suspect and how long was it going on for.
