A 28-year-old Chennai-based tuition teacher and her male friend were arrested on Wednesday, October 6 for forcing a teenaged school student to pose for explicit videos along with another student from the tuition. According to police sources, the accused persons are suspected to have similarly abused other students from the same tuition for the last few months. Tuitions for students of class 10 and 12 were conducted in the home of the woman.
Police said the incident came to light when a 14-year-old girl lodged a complaint against the teacher, S Sanjana and her friend, S Balaji. She told police that both of them had forced her to pose in compromising positions with another boy attending the same tuition. The accused had taken a video and threatened to release it on the internet if she informs anyone about it.
Police are investigating to find whether other students were similarly targeted by Sanjana and Balaji. Police sources said at least a few other students seem to have been victimised. A senior police officer supervising the investigations said it was a very unusual case since the abusers had forced the children to be intimate with one another and videographed it. The videos were later used to blackmail them. Police officers said only after further investigations it can be ascertained whether other children and how long they were abused.
