The trustee, a foreign national, is arrested upon his return from a trip ly. He is being falsely portrayed as a child molester. There is clearly some misunderstanding. People who know him, know that it’s not true.’’
The FIR filed on May 18, alleged that the offence was “discovered’’ on May 15 by the parents who said the alleged abuse took place “several time’’ between November 2016 and March 2017 in a loft in a classroom. The academic year of the school for kindergarten had ended on March 31. On May 14, the trustee who said he teaches only the high school students, not the kindergarten, had gone on a trip to Europe with the senior students on a study tour.
He had stayed back but cut short his trip to return on July 3, showing his bona fides, said a bail application he has now filed before the special court. The bail plea will be heard in the coming days.
