Former Kerala Teacher Held For Molesting Students For Three-Decades

Thiruvananthapuram: Former Kerala school teacher KV Sasikumar was arrested on Saturday under POCSO Act for allegedly molesting students for 30 years.

Following Sasikumar’s Facebook post reminiscing on his 38-year career at the Government-aided Girls High School in Malappuram, an alumna of the school, St. Gemma’s Girls Higher Secondary School posted hinting that Sasikumar had abused students.

Sasikumar was also the Municipal Councillor of the ruling CPIM who was later suspended from the party after the allegations were made.
