Angry relatives of the girl on Thursday thrashed the teacher and blackened his face after confronting him inside the classroom.
It has been alleged that the teacher asked one girl student to stay back on the pretext of giving her some extra lesson after the special class. The teacher has been accused to sexually harassing the girl during this time.
