As per reports, the child monks, aged 6-12 years - hailing from Karbi Anglong district of Assam - were studying at Prasanna Jyoti Buddhist School and Meditation Centre, a school-cum-meditation centre at Mastipur village where they were sexually abused by a Buddhist head monk identified as Bhante Sanghpriya Sujoy. 
It may be stated that the accused is also from Assam.
According to reports, the sexual abuse surfaced after one of the child monks escaped from the school and reached home inKarbi-Anglong. After learning about the child's return, the parents of the other children who lived around his home then reached Bodh Gaya to take their children home.
When the parents sought to know about the matter, the accused monk expelled all 15 victims from the institute.
The parents of the victims lodged a complaint at Bodh Gaya police station under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act 2012 on Wednesday.
As stated by victims the head monk used to sexually abuse them in his office/bedroom, beating and threatening them with dire consequences on refusal. They have been studying at the centre for more than a year.
Gaya’s senior superintendent of police (SSP) Rajeev Mishra said the police acted soon after they got the information about the alleged abuse and arrested the accused from Mastipur village.
Reportedly, police are also investigating details of the trust which runs the school. FIR will be lodged against all members of the trust if any fraudulent activities are found
