The Iqbal Market police on Tuesday arrested the principal of a private school for torturing and harassing a female student.

The police reported that the principal of Climax English School, Manzar Al-Madi, was named in a case filed on the complaint of the victim’s sister, Muqadas Bibi. He was accused of attempting to rape a Class 10 student at the school near Orangi Town.

According to police officials, on June 1, the principal allegedly attempted to rape the student in a room of the school. Bibi stated that the principal had been sending obscene messages and harassing her sister for several days. During the incident, he allegedly turned the CCTV camera towards the ceiling and coerced the student to commit adultery, threatening to fail her in her matriculation exams and ruin her future if she did not comply.

The victim’s sister claimed that the accused tortured the student, but she managed to save herself by striking the principal in the stomach and waist. The police have registered an FIR and are investigating.
