Mumbai, Jan 23 (UNI) The teachers of Vasai-based BOSS music school today claimed they had been falsely implicated in a case in which they were accused of being prostitutes and indulging in black magic.
Addressing a press conference here, Pavithra Murali, psychologist and musician, along with Sarita Parikh, also a musician of the school, said they had filed a public interest litigation, demanding a judicial inquiry against some High court judges for passing judgements against teachers and the school without hearing their side of the case in the last three years.
''We are just teaching music and have been accused of being prostitutes and indulging in black magic by complainants, which include more than 100 government officials,'' Murali said.
Ms Murali alleged she was being threatened by politicians and also underworld elements and she had filed an affidavit against them with the High court judges.
The teachers said the trouble started when they gave shelter to a former student of the school alongwith her children, which did not go well with her politically connected husband.
It may be noted that the BOSS school was shut down by the local police after some people and social workers claimed that founder of the school Glen Fernandes was asking minor girls of his school to indulge in sexual acts and also in prostitution and black magic.
The school was founded in 1996 by Fernandes and so far more than 4,500 students passed out from the school with more than 23 teachers teaching in various branches of the school.
