The matter came to light when a Class 7 student informed her mother about Kumar and her parents lodged a complaint against him with the DEO.
In an inquiry conducted against Kumar, over 60 Class 7 and Class 8 students of the co-education school complained of indecency, the DEO said.
Some of the girls were even reluctant to come forward to lodge a complaint out of fear, an official said.
Kaur said the teacher was earlier transferred from another nearby school on the same charges.
