Mizoram teacher who ‘molested’ 32 girls over 3 years arrested

Lalhmingmawia molested up to 32 girls aged between eight and 12 years old over the past three years.

A 30-year-old primary school teacher at a government school in Champhai district of Mizoram has been arrested for allegedly sexually abusing 32 students in the last three years.

Two sets of parents filed separate FIRs with the police on Tuesday, alleging that the accused molested their daughters in the classroom and the school office several times before threatening them against speaking about the incidents.

One of the FIRs alleged that one girl started bleeding from her private parts after she was molested.

Champhai Superintendent of Police John Laldina said the accused, Lalhmingmawia, was recruited by the village council in 2012 since the school did not have a teacher.
