Abutu said the teachers were reported to the police through a petition received from a source that the suspects sexually molested the victims.
The police spokesperson said, “The suspects, who were alleged to have had sexual intercourse with the pupils, one from the Osi Grammar School and two from the All Souls’ Grammar School, are in our custody and they are giving us useful information.
“We have invited the victims to give useful information to us. But as of now, the victim from the Osi Grammar School denied the allegation while being interrogated.
“But, we are not resting on that; we will get to the root of the matter.”
Abutu said the victims from All Souls’ had been invited by the police for interrogation, adding that they had yet to give information on the incident.
