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.
