Tuition teacher held under POCSO for assaulting three students
Palode: A tuition teacher was arrested for assaulting three girl students who study in second and third standards. The accused, identified as Viswavilasathil Manoj (57), was arrested by police on Wednesday. Manoj had sexually assaulted two eight-years-old girls and one seven-year-old girl at the house where the tuition was being taken. They were assaulted several times.
Manoj has been running a tuition centre for school children near the Nanniyode panchayat office for years. He assaulted them repeatedly threatening to kill.
As one of them could no longer bear the brutality, she revealed the incident to her mother. The family immediately contacted the school and further, the matter was informed to police.
Police registered a case under POCSO based on the petition. More investigation will be conducted to find out whether more girls were assaulted in his long run tuition centre. Manoj was remanded for 14 days after producing at the court.
