The school principal sexually abused the girl in a restroom on the pretext of checking her handwriting and daily homework.
The police have arrested two people- the principle and clerk of a Patna private school- for raping a class 5 student repeatedly for over a month. The student, who is studying in the 5th grade school in Pulwari Sharif area of Patna, has begun vomiting after arriving home Wednesday. The parents immediately took her to a nearby hospital. There the doctors confirmed that she was three weeks pregnant.
The shocked parents asked for an explanation. The girl said that the school principle and clerk had been sexually harassing her for the past nine months. The clerk filmed the act and used this vedio clip to blacmail the girl by telling her that the clip will be posted on social website, if she exposed this to her parents or anyone else. The girl later told the police that “The school clerk had made a video of the act and used to blackmail me by threatening to circulate the clip on social media platforms,” she told the police, adding that the principle had first raped her by calling her to his office on the pretext of examining her exercise book.
The incident was first reported at the Phulwarisharif police station, but later referred to the women's police station at Gardanibagh in Patna district.
Patna police have arrested both the principle and the clerk and they have also recovered the knife used to threatened the girl.
