Police arrested a schoolteacher for allegedly raping a married woman, recording her videos and blackmailing her to get gold jewellery and cash, Dawn reported.
The suspect is a teacher at the Government High School, Chiniot. The woman’s son, a student of 10th class, was his student at his private academy.
The survivor’s husband filed a complaint with the city police stating that the suspect would call his wife to his academy for discussing matters related to his son’s studies.
He said some weeks ago his wife fell sick and went to a local quack, Shafiq, to take medicines where the suspect also arrived. He said that Shafiq and the teacher gave sedatives to his wife and when she was falling unconscious, the suspect (teacher) accompanied her to their house to drop her there.
The complainant said that finding her alone at the house, the suspect raped her and filmed objectionable videos.
He said later the teacher started blackmailing his wife and asked her to give her gold jewellery to him, or he would post the obscene clip on social media.
He said his wife got blackmailed and gave the suspect nine-tola gold jewellery. Similarly, he said, a few days later the suspect received Rs250,000 cash from her. Then the suspect demanded one million rupees but she could not arrange the amount.
When she refused to pay the amount, the suspect got angry and sent the videos to the in-laws of their daughter, who was divorced by her husband over the issue.
Finally, the blackmailed woman revealed the whole story to her husband, who registered a complaint with the city police.
The police registered a case under sections 376, 382 and 506 of PPC against the suspect and arrested him and his accomplice Shafiq.
District Education Officer Dr Khadim Hussain said the teacher had been suspended from service and a departmental inquiry had been started against him under the Punjab Employees Efficiency and Discipline ACT (PEEDA), 2006.
