The girl was raped by teacher Sharif on January 1 when she went to pick her younger sister who takes classes at the Madarsa, Circle In-charge of Indergarh police station, Kelash Chand Jat said.

On Wednesday night, Sharif took the girl from her home on some pretext and left her with his friend Akbar who raped her in his home, he said.
