A rather shocking incident of abuse that took place in Bowenpally has recently come to light.
A dance master from Bowenpally, Hyderabad, was arrested yesterday for allegedly having misbehaved with a minor student of his.
Speaking on the matter, the police revealed that the accused, 30-year-old Surender, who had been working as an instructor at a dance institute for some years, recently molested the minor under the pretext of training her.
Following the incident, the girl informed her parents who then filed a police complaint with the Bownepally police.
In their complaint, the parents told the police that they had enrolled their daughter at the dance school of the accused, Urban Dance World, so that she could be trained in classical dance. However, the accused molested the girl "in the name of teaching her belly dancing".
The police have booked a case against the teacher under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act. They then arrested him and are currently in the process of interrogating him. He was earlier produced in court, and was then sentenced to judicial remand.
Reports say that he had been implicated in several similar cases in the past as well.
