The owner of a coaching institute in UP’s Ballia district has been booked under the POCSO Act for allegedly taking obscene videos and photographs of a 14-year-old girl and sharing them on social media, police said Thursday.
The Class 10 girl studied at the institute, they said.
A complaint has been registered at the Pakdi police station following a complaint by her father.
The father has alleged that the institute owner indulged in ”obscene acts” with the girl while teaching her and made its videos and also took some photographs, Pakdi police station in-charge Shatrughan Kumar said.
