A 27-year old teacher has been arrested for allegedly raping 11 girls aged nine and 10.
The incident took place in Gopalpet Mandal, Wanaparthy district in Telangana where the accused used to teach students of classes 4-6 at a private school. He also gave private tuitions to class 4 students.
The horrific crime came to light after parents of one of the children noticed bloodstains on the girl’s clothes on Thursday night.
The child narrated the woeful tale to the family and also told them that she knew another girl who was raped.
Following this, residents of Yedutla village reached the school and ransacked the place. Locals thrashed the teacher. Later, they handed him over to the police.
The accused allegedly confessed to having raped 11 minor girls. While few of the victims were students of the school. Some attended the coaching classes he used to conduct at his aunt’s house.
He allegedly lured the girls on the pretext of helping them improve their exam scores.
He allegedly raped the girls while drunk. Later, he manipulated them not to tell their parents anything about the assault.
“He does not remember the names of the girls he assaulted. They used to attend his tuition classes in batches, and this has been happening since 2018. So we don’t even know who those girls are and where they are. As of now, only two of the girls are known,” Kiran Kumar, Wanaparthy Deputy Superintendent of Police said.
A case has been registered under sections under Section 376 (punishment for rape), 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with the intent to outrage her modesty) and under relevant sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
