The student was sexually abused by his female teacher.
Chattisgarh (INDIA): A 30-year-old female school teacher has been arrested on charges of sexually exploiting a minor student in Chhattisgarh’s Bilaspur district. The 17-year-old student died by suicide on March 19.
Prashant Agarwal, Superintendent of Police (SP) in Bilaspur, told media that the boy left behind a suicide note written in code. He had given the key to the code to some of his friends. The police decoded the suicide note on Wednesday.
As per the note, the 17-year-old boy entered into a relationship with the teacher. He was an academically accomplished student and she taught him chemistry at a prestigious school in the city. The teacher later decided to marry another teacher. The student too left the school and joined another one.
The note says that when he tried to meet her, the teacher refused to do so and he felt hurt. He recorded in his note that she “used” him when it suited her. He decided to end his life, stating that no one would believe his story unless he took this step.
Prior to ending his life, the student hacked into the teacher’s phone and social media accounts and wiped out all the information there. He also sent screenshots of his chats with the teacher to his friends.
The police have recovered the teacher’s cell phone and it has been sent to cyber experts to retrieve any data.
“We also wanted to investigate if it was a case of infatuation or a one-sided affair but the screenshots sent to his friends suggest the teacher and student were involved,” said SP Prashant Agarwal.
The police have booked the teacher under the Protection of Child from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act and section 306 (abetment of suicide) of the Indian Penal Code.
