An investigation has revealed that more than 45 women have fallen victim to the alleged rape and blackmail actions of a school principal who was arrested recently.
According to the MMNEWS, the principal, an employee of a private school in Karachi’s Gulshan-e-Hadeed area, was apprehended by the police on charges of raping and blackmailing numerous women. He used closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage to coerce his victims, with 25 such video clips found on his cellphone.
The scandal came to light when an explicit video involving the principal and a female teacher circulated online. Following this, the principal’s office was sealed, and forensic investigations are pending. The accused, identified as Irfan Ghafoor Memon, has been remanded to jail for seven days.
According to the accused, he rented the school in December for Rs100,000 per month and stated that the school had approximately 10 female teachers, five male teachers, and around 250 students.
The case was registered at the Steel Town police station based on the state’s complaint. The First Information Report (FIR) includes charges of sexual harassment, threats, and blackmail.
The investigation officer mentioned that the principal would exploit female teachers under the guise of offering employment and used videos to blackmail them.
The investigating authorities also added that the DVR of the CCTV cameras has been taken as evidence while his mobile phone will also be examined.
