Jammu jun 01: Police on Tuesday arrested a teacher of Aakash Tutorial Gandhi Nagar for allegedly making an attempt to outrage the modesty of a 15-year-old girl student, whom he invited to Shivam Hotel Railway Station road, on the pretext of his birthday party.
When the girl reached the hotel, she found no one in the room. Sensing trouble, she asked about the other guests but the accused faculty member, identified as Rambaran Tyagi, started kissing and touching her private parts. Tyagi also tried to lock the room from inside but the girl managed to flee.
In sheer frustration, she narrated the incident to her parents who lodged a police complaint. Accordingly, an FIR 151/22 under sections A/354-B-354/511/376 was registered against Tyagi.
Acting swiftly, police traced and nabbed the accused, who was trying to flee to Delhi.
This is not the first incident reported from the Aakash Tutorials. A, number of cases have earlier also been reported with parents avoiding to lodge formal complaints, police said, adding, “We always assure the parents that their identity will be kept secret but still very few cases are reported.”
STATE TIMES has got the list of other tutorials also against whom such complaints are lying pending. Lack of evidences has led to delay in dispensation of justice in many cases. However, a senior police officer said such institutes must be named in public and the accused faculty members exposed on all social media platforms, so that parents can know about the character of the teachers.
Aakash Institute made several threatening calls to STATE TIMES after the news of their faculty member’s arrest was posted. The callers threatened the scribe, “How did you carry such a report as there is no such faculty in the Aakash Tutorial”. The caller appeared to be unaware about the FIR lodged against the teacher, a copy of which is in the possession of the STATE TIMES.
Meanwhile, the complaint from the girl’s father added that his daughter (name withheld) is studying in Aakash Institute Gandhi Nagar Jammu for the last over one and half year and Rambaran Tyagi, a Chemistry Teacher was delivering online classes.
“Tyagi called my daughter telephonically and asked her to join his birthday party with her other batch mates in Hotel Shivam Trikuta Nagar, Jammu. My daughter with good intentions went to the Hotel and found no one but only Rambaran Tyagi in the room,” the complainant father stated in his complaint to police.
Confirming the arrest, police has made an appeal to parents to come forward if anyone commits such type of crime.(ST
