The police on Saturday said a teacher at a government school in Dwarka has been booked for molesting two students and searches are under way to trace him.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Dwarka) M. Harsha Vardhan said an 11-year-old girl came to the Dwarka South police station with her parents on Thursday to file a complaint alleging that the teacher, Amit, had touched her inappropriately.

The child was counselled and a case was registered, he added.

“We received another complaint on Friday of a similar nature against the accused and a case under the POCSO Act has been registered. Efforts are on to arrest him,” the DCP said.
