Girl raped inside Delhi municipal school, protesters turn violent
The Class II student was sexually assaulted inside the North Delhi Municipal Corporation-run primary school in Mongolpuri L Block of north-west Delhi yesterday and the incident came to light at around 9 AM today when her parents informed police about it.
The girl could not identify the offender and no one has been arrested so far though two male teachers and a guard of the school were questioned, police said.
The shocking incident came two-and-half months after the gory rape of a 23-year-old girl in a moving bus in south Delhi on December 16 last year which triggered nationwide protests.
Soon after the matter was reported to police, the girl was taken to Sanjay Gandhi Hospital where a medical examination confirmed rape. The girl was later discharged from hospital, police said.
"The victim was raped by a man inside the school campus yesterday. Her parents approached us this morning and a case has been registered. The victim could not tell us anything about the attacker. She could not identify the offender.
"We are investigating the case. We have questioned the male staff, including two teachers and a guard," a senior police official said.
Enraged over the incident, locals, including a number of women, staged protests in the locality as well as near the hospital.
A section of the protesters later turned violent near the hospital and pelted stones
