THIRUPUVANAM: The Sivaganga police on Monday detained the Maranadu High School headmaster for abusing schoolboys sexually.

The District Education Officer Abdul Rahim said based on the alert of a parent he inquired with the school headmaster Valan and found that he sexually abused school students for some months.

“We suspended him and filed a complaint against him,” Rahim said.

Police said Valan had been a headmaster of the school for one year. He allegedly abused the school students by threatening to fail them unless they yielded to his craving for sex. He also lured students by paying them money for sexual acts and forced them into oral sex.

Fearing the headmaster, the students didn’t tell their parents, claimed the police.

Rahim said that they didn’t know how many students he had exploited in the last one year.  “We are still investigating the case”.

The police said he used the school bathroom for sexually abusing the students. 

The incident came to light when a parent overheard the students talking among themselves about this incident.  Manamadurai AWPS police booked a case under  POCSO Act, 2012.
