Patna: Two women teachers of a reputed missionary school in Patna were arrested for allegedly having sex with a six-year-old girl student, police on Saturday said.
The victim is a LKG student of St. Xaviers School near Gandhi maidan in Patna.
Patna Senior Superintendent of Police Manu Maharaj said two female teachers were arrested after an FIR was lodged against them under sections 376 of IPC and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012.
“Police have been interrogating them at woman police station here, they may or may not be produced before the court on Saturday,” he said. He said police have also interrogated the school Principal, Father Jacob, over the incident.
Medical examination of the victim has confirmed internal injuries to her private parts, the police said.
The police have recorded statement of the victim’s parents. Maharaj said he has asked Patna city Superintendent of Police Chandan Kushwaha to investigate into the matter.
According to the FIR, filed by victim’s grandfather, the child had complained to her mother about the pain in her private parts and informed her that two female school teachers, whom she addressed them as “Badi Mam” and “Chhoti Mam”, had been playing with her private parts in a room despite her protest.
“Victim even revealed to her mother that two accused female teachers during school time used to take her to a closed room, undress her and played with her private parts.” A team of Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) experts have visited school premises where the girl was allegedly sexually exploited on a portable bed and collected evidences.
The school Principal said the school management has constituted a sexual harassment inquiry committee that will look into the incident. “The school will take action against the two accused if they were found guilty,” he said.
