The Hush Post: A Dehradun boarding school student has been gang-raped allegedly by her seniors.
The victim is a student of Class 10. Five staff members have been arrested and four students have been detained.
The girl, who lived in the boarding, told her elder sister that she was raped after she fell sick. Later, it was found out that she was pregnant.
“It’s a month-old incident and has come to light now. Earlier, the school authorities were trying to suppress the issue,” Uttarakhand Additional Director General of Police Ashok Kumar was quoted as saying as per a report which appeared in NDTV.
The girl named four senior students of the school who allegedly gang-raped her.
The sisters stayed together in the school’s boarding facility and their parents rarely visited them as they had frequent fights.
Soon after her sister was alerted about the alleged rape, their family members reached the school. Police too reached the school along with the Sub-Divisional Magistrate and Child Welfare Committee officials. The girl’s statement has been recorded.
Police are questioning the staff at the school and the boarding facility.
