A school headmaster in Bengal was on Friday arrested for allegedly molesting a girl student of class V in a bus.
Binoy Das, the headmaster of Memari Boro-Palashon High School was travelling by a bus from Kalna to Burdwan, the police said.
Priyobrata Bakshi, inspector in-charge of Burdwan police station said, the girl was a student of Harishabha Hindu Girl’s High School and was travelling in the same bus along with her mother. She is a resident of Mithapukur area of Burdwan, West Bengal.
