The teacher was arrested by the police on Friday.

Angry parents staged a massive protest against the Carmel Primary School in Kolkata over the alleged.

"We have taken the teacher with us to the police station", the police official said, adding that the parents assaulted the accused teacher when he was being taken away.

The principal came out of the school at one point of time and announced on a loudspeaker that normal classes would be held from Tuesday after the school picnic on Monday. "They have assured us that the CCTVs will be working from tomorrow again", CWC representative Sudeshna Ray said.

State Education Minister Partha Chatterjee told a TV channel, "We have already set guidelines for schools to follow". The school authorities refrained from commenting on the issue.
