As per court orders, Kanpur police have booked four people, including a woman teacher, for sexually exploiting a minor boy and forcing him to undergo religious conversion. The victim is a Class 10 student. His parents, from Unnao, have claimed that the schoolteacher forced the boy to have sexual relations and later pressured him to convert to her religion.

When parents informed the school principal, she allegedly suggested them to keep the matter under wraps. The parents then approached the local police, but no action was taken.

So, they moved the court which ordered the FIR against the accused. Three others booked are the woman teacher’s husband, her brother and the headmistress.
They have been booked under the POCSO Act and the UP Prohibition of Unlawful Conversion of Religion Act. 

Meanwhile, additional commissioner of police (Cantt) Vrij Narayan Singh said on Monday that a case has been registered in the Cantt police station on the orders of the court.

“The complainant had alleged that his son was subjected to sexual harassment by the schoolteacher, who also forced him to convert to her religion. Police will investigate all the allegations and further action will be taken on the basis of evidence,” said the ACP.
