Panaji: A teacher of a government-run school in Goa was arrested on Thursday for allegedly molesting five girl students, police said.

The arrest was made after the five students of the school, located in Ponda town of South Goa district, complained to the authorities against the teacher, Manoj Phadte, Superintendent of Police Arvind Gawas told reporters.

“The students, all minors from Classes 5 and 7, informed the school’s internal complaints committee that they were molested by the teacher. The girls alleged that the teacher touched them inappropriately,” Gawas said.
