A government teacher has been arrested for reportedly trying to rape a 13-year-old girl in a school in Jammu and Kashmir's Doda district, the police said on Saturday. 

The 48-year-old teacher, S K Manhas, was arrested from his house at Khellani village on Friday evening after the girl's parents filed a complaint, claiming that the accused tried to rape their daughter, said Muneer Khan, the Station House Officer of the Bhaderwah police station. 

The complaint claimed that the teacher called the girl to the classroom during the morning assembly on the pretext of searching her bag for lipstick. He then bolted the door and tried to rape her, Khan said.
