In a shocking incident, a Class I student was allegedly raped by her schoolmates. The incident has been reported from a school located in Khamtarai police station limits in Raipur, Chhattisgarh.
The incident took place on August 20. The six-year-old victim narrated her ordeal to her parents who approached the police. A case under Sections 276 and 354 A of the IPC and Section 4 of POCSO Act was subsequently registered against the three accused minors. They have not been detained yet.
The girl’s statement was recorded before the Child Welfare Commission. Her medical examination confirmed sexual assault.
She said that the three boys took her to a bathroom in the school where two of them sexually assaulted her while the third stood guard outside.
A woman teacher saw the boys, scolded them and took the girl to the principal’s office. The minor victim was then sent home. The parents first approached the school demanding action against the boys, but got no response. Following this, they filed a case with the police.
“The girl’s statement was recorded before the Child Welfare Commission. A medical examination done on her confirmed sexual assault,” the official said.
The three boys have been charged under section 376 (rape) and 354 A (sexual harassment) of the IPC and section 4 of the POCSO Act but they have not been detained as yet, he said.
