    The teen-aged girl, a class ninth student staying at the orphanage, in a complaint to police on Sunday had accused Madhav Rao of sexually harassing her after calling in his room in the premises, a police official attached to L B Nagar Police Station said.

    Following the complaint, a case under section 354A (sexual harassment) of the IPC and under relevant sections of POCSO Act was booked against Madhav and he was arrested.

    He is being produced before a local court on Monday, the official said. In a related development, city-based Balala Hakkula Sangham, an NGO working for child rights, condemned the incident.

    "A thorough inspection should be conducted at private orphanages and if any irregularities are found such orphanages should be immediately merged with government homes," honorary president of the NGO, Achyuta Rao said.
