The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has suspended a teacher, who was an in-charge headmaster at Kodandaramapura High School which the civic body runs, for allegedly getting a massage from a parent on the school premises. A departmental inquiry has been instituted against him.

The woman came to the school seeking admission for her child. Lokeshappa, in-charge headmaster of the school on learning that the woman worked at a beauty parlour, reportedly pressured her to give him a massage.

The incident came to light after visuals were leaked to the media, causing a furore.

“Lokeshappa has admitted to having accepted the massage upon being questioned,” said the BBMP.

He has been suspended for dereliction of duty during the government work hours as per the Karnataka Civil Services Regulations.
