Girl, 4, sexually assaulted in school

Girl, 4, sexually assaulted in school”

While the issue of a five-year-old girl's rape inside a classroom in Delhi is still raging, a girl studying in a school in Bengaluru was allegedly sexually assaulted in the school premises. The incident came to light when the child returned home from school in the afternoon and complained of feeling sick. The parents got anxious and took her to the MS Ramaiah Memorial Hospital where doctors confirmed that she had been sexually assaulted.

According to reports, the girl was assaulted by the security guard in the school's toilet.

The police are trying to ascertain how the crime could have taken place despite the school complying with all the prescribed security measures.

Taken aback by the incident, they lodged a complaint at Bagalagunte police station. The father works in a private firm. Around 1.30 pm she left the school.

As news about the alleged incident spread, several angry parents gathered at the school demanding action against the accused. "The guard is tight-lipped and interrogation is on", the officer added. Meanwhile, the police are also obtaining CCTV footage from the cameras at the school to identify the culprit.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (North) Chetan Singh Rathore said five security guards at the school had been detained for questioning. Since it is a POCSO case we questioned the school authorities and the staff including teachers."A team of officials from the education department went to the school and questioned the school authorities. When Express contacted the school authorities, they were not available for comment".
