Padmapur: A teacher was put behind bars for blackmailing a female colleague with her obscene photos. The incident was reported from Basudevpur in Bhadrak district.
The man was produced in a local court Monday morning and was sent to jail as his bail plea was rejected.
The teacher has been identified as Chakradhar Sethy, a resident of Kismatkrishnapur village. However, it is yet to be ascertained if the accused and the lady teacher were of the same school.

Taking the case seriously, the police swung into action. Registering a case (Case No-74/2020), the police arrested the teacher.
