JASHPUR (Chhattisgarh): A teacher here has been accused of seeking sexual favours from girl students and chicken from other students in lieu of passing them in examinations.
The students said that teacher threatens them that he will fail them in the examination and they will have to bear "severe consequences" had they not fulfilled his illicit demands.
"He said that I have to cater to his physical needs. He was asking for a sexual favour from me. He also asked for chicken," said a girl student.
"He said that I will have to bring chicken for him. Otherwise, the consequences would be not good for me. He also used to drop messages to me on my mobile, saying why I didn't talk to him," said another girl student.
"He said that he will let us copy in the examination of History if we cater to his undue demands," said a group of girl students of Class XII.
While the teacher, when reached, denied the claim and said that he used to entertain students.
"I said nothing like that. Sometimes I just used to entertain students. That's all," said Bhardwaj.
Meanwhile, the District Education Officer (DEO) said that he will take strict action in the matter.
"The matter has come to my notice. I will seek a report on it. I will take action against the teacher at the earliest. The matter is very serious," said N Kujur, DEO.
