Tutor Calls Female Student ‘Prostitute’ For Letting Male Friend Keep His Head On Her Lap

Gone are the days when school teachers or home tutors would vent their anger by passing lewd comments or giving physical punishments to make their pupils disciplined. Today, any offensive remark or any kind of physical or mental harassment done towards the students holds the highest degree of punishment by the law.

This incident from Mumbai’s Andheri (west) is an example of that. A 48-year-old tutor was put behind bars on the basis of a complaint filed by his fellow student. The tutor was accused of passing derogatory remarks towards his 16-year-old female student following which an FIR was lodged.

According to a report by The Indian Express, the accused teacher allegedly called the teen student a “prostitute” after she reportedly let a fellow male student rest his head on her lap. The Mumbai teacher who takes private tuition classes claimed that during the class, he noticed a male student keeping his head on the girl’s lap. That’s when he got furious and angrily reprimanded the student and passed lewd sexist remarks, including the word “prostitute”, in front of 8 to 10 other students.

The complainant then returned home and shared the ordeal with her parents. The next day, the family approached the Oshiwara police and registered an FIR against the tutor.

The victim informed the cops that the boy in question had dropped his pencil on the ground and while picking it up his head touched her lap. Soon after, a case was registered against the tutor under the IPC’s Section 509 (act, word or gesture intended to insult woman’s modesty) and stringent Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
