Bihar girl raped for months by principal, two teachers and 16 students

The school is located in Parsagarh village which comes under the jurisdiction of Ekma police station of Saran district, about 35 kms from the district headquarters of Chapra

Chapra: According to the first information report registered by the police, the girl was gang-raped by three schoolmates in the school lavatory in December 2017. The accused also shot a video of the rape and threatened to make the video public if she reported the matter to anyone at school or home.

However, a few days later, the alleged rapists shared the video with other school friends, the FIR said. Gradually it reached a few teachers and the principal, and she was blackmailed for sex, the girl alleged.

The class 9 girl has alleged that she was raped and blackmailed by her school’s principal, two teachers and 16 students in Bihar’s Saran district, police said today.

The principal and a teacher were arrested and four students apprehended for allegedly raping and blackmailing the girl, Superintendent of Police (Saran) Harkishore Rai said.

In her complaint, the girl alleged that she was raped and subsequently blackmailed for seven months by the principal, two teachers and 16 students.

The school is located in Parsagarh village which comes under the jurisdiction of Ekma police station of Saran district, about 35 kms from the district headquarters of Chapra.

The SP has constituted a Special Investigation Team (SIT) under Deputy Superintendent of Police Ajay Kumar Singh, who visited the school yesterday, and made the arrests.

Raids are being conducted to apprehend the other accused, the SP added.

In the complaint, the victim alleged that she was first raped by some of the students of her school in a toilet there in December 2017, Rai said.

The students also recorded a video of the act and threatened her to make it viral if she reported the matter to anyone, he said.

When the victim complained to the principal about the incident, he convinced and persuaded her not to lodge a complaint as the matter would bring disrepute to her and the family, the SP said.

The principal along with two teachers, later, also raped and blackmailed her, the girl alleged. The victim said today that she could not muster courage to lodge a complaint with the police since her father was in jail for several months.

The girl’s father was released from jail a couple of days ago and a complaint was lodged yesterday.
