A dance teacher of the Presidium School in north-west Delhi's Ashok Vihar was sacked on Monday and a police complaint filed against him for allegedly behaving inappropriately with a girl student.

The teacher, who joined the school this month, is alleged to have behaved improperly and inappropriately with a Class V student during a dance class.

“The teacher allegedly told the child ‘I will remove your ID card, then your shirt and then your skirt’,” said the principal of the school, adding that his services have been terminated.
