Rayagada: The court of the additional district and session judge, Rayagada on Monday awarded life imprisonment to a teacher for indulging in ‘unnatural sexual act’ with a minor boy student.
The court also imposed a fine of Rs 3 lakh on the accused teacher identified as M Uday Kumar.
“The court awarded life sentence to M Uday Kumar under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act and Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act,” said Public Prosecutor CH Srinivas Rao.
