A 63-year-old Madrassa teacher from Kottayam district, Kerala was arrested for alleged sexual abuse on many of his students over several years.

The man identified as Yusuf, hailing from Aluva suburb of Kochi, was teaching at a local mosque in Thalayolaparambu town of Kottayam for the past two years, where he sexually abused many children.

To evade away any suspicions of the children’s parents, Yusuf held long prayers and speeches, thus earning a name for himself in his neighborhood. The mosque authorities trusted him enough to even alloted a private room for him, where he went on to abuse his victims.

According to statements from police officials, the accused has been arrested and further investigation into the matter is underway.
