Badasahi: A teacher was reportedly beaten up by locals following allegation that he sexually harassed three minor girls in Badasahi in Mayubhanj district.
As the news of sexual harassment of girl students was spread, over a hundred people including women rushed to Markundi primary school and detained the teacher named Durga Charan Giri and started beating him up.
The headmaster had been showing sexually explicit video on his cell phone to the girls of Class-V and even sexually harassing them for a long time. They shared it with their mothers on Wednesday.
As the matter was told to the villagers, they got united and detained the head master and intimated the issue to the Block Education Officer (BEO). Following a directive from the BEO, ABEO Bhaskar Behera, Sarbeswar Padhi and CRCC Santosh Biswal held talks with the guardians and recorded the statements of the girls.
However, the locals have demanded for strict action against the head master. A son of the teacher was also beaten up by the locals when he misbehaved with them. IIC Pascal Ekka reached the spot and tried to convince the agitating locals.
