Rayagada: Tension erupted at Badahuma School in Godari village of the district after locals locked up a teacher inside the school building for allegedly misbehaving with a girl student today.

According to sources, the teacher Rabit Bidika had allegedly misbehaved with the girl of the village when she was alone in the school yesterday.

After the girl informed about the incident, her family members and other locals of the village stormed into the school and locked up the accused teacher.

As police reached the spot and initiated a probe, the accused teacher clarified that he had done nothing wrong with the girl.
