College teacher Mohammed Arshad was booked for sending inappropriate messages to girl students at a private engineering college owned by the family of former SP MLA and BSP candidate from Bijnor assembly segment Ruchi Veera.
The issue came to light after one girl who received the offensive messages discussed it with her fellow students, and other girls too came forward saying they had received similar messages.
Some of the WhatsApp messages were shared on Twitter by a local journalist –
Some of the messages sent by Md. Arshad are “Can I be your bf (boyfriend)”. The girl replies with “What rubbish sir? How dare you say this, stay in your limits”, but undeterred, Arshad immediately replies “I am always in my limit…Will you marry me”.
To another girl he messages at 10 PM “Can we mingle”, and when she replies “I’m single and I’m happy in this”, he says, “So no interest to be my bestie”. He harasses another girl by asking “Will you marry me”. When she rejects and reminds him she is his student, the pervert replies, “will tender resignation…bolo”.
The girls decided to inform their parents and ABVP members. On Monday, along with their parents and ABVP the girls held a protest at the Kunwar Satya Vira College of Engineering and Management demanding action against Arshad. Seeing the situation, he slipped away from the college. Soon, police also arrived.

Taking suo moto cognisance of the matter, we have registered a case against the accused under relevant sections of the IPC and the IT Act. The accused teacher will be arrested soon.”
