Hyderabad: Cyberabad Police on Monday arrested a man, the founder of a private orphanage here for allegedly sexually harassing a 14-year-old girl inmate. The class ninth student staying at the orphanage in a complaint to police on Sunday has accused Madhav Rao of sexually harassing her after calling in his room in the premises, a police official attached to LB Nagar Police Station said.

“Following the complaint, a case under section 354A (sexual harassment) of the IPC and under relevant sections of POCSO Act was booked against Madhav and he was arrested. He is being produced before a local court on Monday,” the official said.

City-based Balala Hakkula Sangham, an NGO working for child rights, condemned the incident. "A thorough inspection should be conducted at private orphanages and if any irregularities are found such orphanages should be immediately merged with government homes," said honorary president of the NGO, Achyuta Rao.
