The COVID-19 Novel Corona Virus Pandemic has already been wreaking havoc in the lives of most people with the lockdown and economic meltdown as well as the loss of lives and livelihoods! However, some sick psychos seem not be affected by any of these and are going about their dirty business, as always! It has now come to light that a 26-year-old school teacher had been sexually assaulting a 9th standard boy. Karthik, a Computer Science teacher at a school in Kancheepuram, had been residing at Mettu Street, in Melacherry near Palur of Chengalpattu district. A single mother, who had lost her husband, had been living in the same locality with her son. She is an employee at the local mid-day meal establishment of the government. Since all schools have been closed down due to the COVID lockdown, students are only studying through online classes.

Karthik had also been taking his classes online, during this Pandemic. Reports state that about 3 months ago, Karthik approached the mother and asked her to send her son to his house, so he could help with the boy's studies. The student, who had been studying in a government aided school at Chengalpattu, began going to Karthik's house for classes. However, over the past couple of days, the student had seemed very tired and silent and even a little reclusive. He had also been vomiting frequently. Having noticed all this, his mother enquired what happened to him and that is when he gave out some shocking details. The 13-year-old boy is said to have revealed that Karthik had been regularly abusing him sexually, despite the boy crying in pain. Karthik is also said to have recorded the act on his mobile and threatened the boy to remain silent or that he would release it online.

Further repoprts state that on getting know of all this, the boy's mother went to Karthik's house to confront him but when he was in the bathroom, she transferred all her son's photos and video from Karthik's phone to her's. She is then said to have approached the Palur Police Station with the help of a few neighbours and registered a complaint against Karthik here. The Police immediately arrested Karthik and registered him under the POCSO (Prevention of Children from Sexual Offenses) Act. This incident has caused quite a stir in the region. Such perverts should be dealt with strongly, to prevent anybody else from committing further such crimes! Stay tuned for updates...
