New Delhi: A student at a government school in Delhi locked up a 44-year-old teacher in the school washroom for about 15 minutes and demanded “sexual favour” in return of her release.

“She was inside the washroom when she heard a noise and realised that the door had been locked from outside,” the IE quoted its sources as saying.
“She initially requested the student to open the door, but he started abusing her. He then started demanding sexual favours on the pretext of unlocking her door. The teacher started screaming for help, following which the student fled. However, she managed to get a glimpse of him through the ventilator,” sources added.
The teacher, however, could not identify the student. Police said they will go through the CCTV footage and investigate the matter
