In Kanataka’s Rantavalalu village, located in the Madhugiri taluk of Tumkur district, a group of parents staged a protest inside a school today, November 28, demanding action against a teacher who has allegedly misbehaved with female students. The accused teacher is known to be Lakshmikanth.

The parents claimed that Lakshmikanth came to the school in an inebriated state and misbehaved with the girls. They also alleged that he used to lure schoolgirls with money, and by claiming that he knew their fathers. The accused allegedly told them that he was friends with their fathers and sexually harassed them, as per a report by IANS.
