A teacher is a person who is supposed to guide students on the right path to achieve success in life. The teacher-student relationship has always been held with high regards in our society. However, an incident of a headmaster allegedly raping two minor students has now tarnished the teacher-student relationship. The shocking incident has been reported from Odisha's Kendrapara district.

It is alleged that the headmaster raped a class 6 and 7 class girl student inside the premises of the Madhusudan Vidyamandir, a private school at Ghadiamal under Rajnagar police limits in the district. The accused has been identified as Pradeep Pradhan.

As per the allegations, Pradhan lured both the girls to an empty classroom and raped them. The matter came to light after some senior girls approached the victims after getting some information about the incident. Later, the family members of the minors lodged a formal complaint at Rajnagar police station.

On getting information, Police detained the accused headmaster on Friday. “A case has been 376 (F) 354 (A), 506 of the Indian Penal Code and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act and the case is under investigation. The accused is detained and further investigation is underway,” said Ajay Jena, Inspector-in-Charge of Rajnagar Police Station on Friday.

Meanwhile, the medical examination of the accused headmaster has been conducted and is likely to be produced before the court today.
