The school principal who allegedly molested a six-year-old student of his school was remanded to judicial custody by a magistrate court on Tuesday.

The principal was arrested last week after the six-year-old victim’s mother approached the MIDC police alleging that the principal had touched her son inappropriately at the school toilet on August 31.

Senior inspector of MIDC police station R Mandge said, “The Magistrate’s court remanded the principal to judicial custody till September 28.”
