BANGALORE: A British national, who was working as the Head Master of an international school at Sahakaranagar, was arrested by Kodigehalli police on charges of seeking sexual favour from a 14-year-old boy who was studying in class seven at his school.
The accused has been identified as Paul Francis Meekan (38), a native of London. He was working in the school since a year.
According to the police, Meekan reportedly called the boy unnecessarily to his chamber and asked him ‘inappropriate and objectionable’ questions. He also allegedly sent vulgar messages while chatting with the boy on a social networking site. Recently, when he was chatting with the boy, he allegedly asked him for sexual favours. The boy informed his mother about it and she complained to the school management about it besides filing a police complaint.
“Following the allegation, the school management dismissed him and he was arrested on Friday. He has been booked under IT and Juvenile Justice Acts. He was released after he was granted bail by a court on Saturday,” the police added.
“The boy comes from an affluent family that had settled in USA for many years. He is now residing with his mother in Basavanagudi while his father is in USA,”they said.
