Mangaluru, Nov 26 2015: A teacher of the Nithyadhar English Medium School at Permannur near Ullal who was reportedly sexually harassing minor boys of the school, was arrested by the Ullal police on November 25, Wednesday.
He has been booked under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO Act) 2012.
