Mumbai: The principal of an English medium school in Maharashtra's Solapur district allegedly committed suicide on Sunday after a molestation complaint was filed against him by two students, police said.

Following the complaint on Saturday, some members of an outfit had reached the school and had blackened the principal's face, they said.

Dilip Khadtarne, principal of New English Medium School at Sangola, used to take extra classes during summer vacation inside the school premises, senior inspector of Sangola police station Harun Shaikh said.

Two girls approached police on Saturday and lodged a complaint that Khadtarne used to molest them during these classes, the police officer said.

"Yesterday, some members of an outfit reached the school and blacked Khadtarne's face", the official said.

"The principal had left the school, before we reached there. He informed some persons in the school that he was going the police station, but he never came there," Shaikh said, adding, "He committed suicide by jumping from the fourth floor of a building in Pandharpur town."

The kin of the principal has lodged a complaint against nine members of the outfit, who were booked on the charge of abatement of suicide, the inspector said, adding that a probe was on.
