SRINAGAR — After being arrested by police, the government has now suspended a school principal for allegedly ‘harassing’ girl students in Srinagar outskirts.
The accused has been identified as Shabir Ahmed Mir, a resident of Zadibal Srinagar, who was posted as principal at Gund Hasi Bhat School in Srinagar outskirts.
Initial reports said that the accused principal was making unnecessary phone calls during night hours to girl students, forcing them to indulge in murky chats. A couple of students informed their parents who approached the police and got the licentious accused arrested.

The school principal is currently in police custody and formal FIR vide number 31 stands registered against him under sections 354D (stalking), 294 (obscene act in a public place), and 506 (criminal intimidation) at Police Station Shalteng.
