Aska/Dharakote, Jul 11:
One-sided love affair with his student left a private tuition teacher in Odisha’s Ganjam district blushing.
The tuition teacher– Bijay Kumar Panda (25)– from Bahadaguda village under Dharakote police station limits in Odisha’s Ganjam district was tonsured, paraded around the village for uploading morphed pictures of his girl student, who is studying in class IX.
After the examinations were over in May, the tuition teacher had taken his students for a feast at a nearby Hanuman temple in the village. The teacher had posed for photographs with his students. He had also taken his love interest’s pictures and proposed her during that outing. However, the minor girl turned down the proposal and narrated the incident to her family members after returning from the picnic.
The girl’s family had warned Bijay not to involve in such activities. Soon after this, the accused stopped giving tuitions to students’ and relocated to the capital city in search of a job.
Bijay managed to get an accountant’s job in the temple city but was unable to get over the rejection by his lover.
Apparently to satisfy his spitefullness, he allegedly photoshopped the girl’s image stored in his mobile phone and uploaded it on social media platform. When the villagers came to know about this, the girl’s family along with local residents went out on a mission to Bhubaneswar to trace Bijay.
He was picked from the city and was brought to the village and subsequently grilled by the villagers. When he failed to negotiate the volley of querries from the probing villagers, the latter handed out instant justice to the accused.
The incriminated person was tonsured and paraded around the village with a hand-written board hung around his neck–“Rasikia Tuition Sir”– which meant—a libertine tuition teacher.
Local police reached the spot and rescued the tuition teacher from the clutches of the villagers.
Till last reports came in, accused Bijay Kumar Panda was detained in the police station for interrogation.
