Chandigarh: Principal of a Sonipat school allegedly raped a 16-year-old class 10th girl on the pretext of helping her with her board exams. The principal made a dummy sit for her physical education boards exams while he raped the girl in a nearby house in Gohana town in Sonipat, Haryana, with the help of two other women.
The police officials booked the two women for criminal conspiracy as the incident had taken place in their house and the principal under the Prevention of Children from Sexual Offences (Pocso) Act. The three have been absconding since Tuesday night.
The father of the 16-year-old victim, according to the reports, was ready to pay Rs 10,000 to the principal so that he could help his daughter pass the board exams.
The girl’s father told the police that the principal called them to a school on the outskirts of Gohana. When they reached the place, the principal asked the girl’s father to leave his daughter at his (the principal’s) relative’s place.
“He said another girl would write my daughter’s exam,” the victim’s father told the police. The principal also asked him to pick up his daughter after the physical education exam got over. When he came over to pick his daughter, she told him that the principal had raped her.
By the time the girl’s father realised what had happened, the three had fled the house. “Soon after recording the statement of the survivor, we registered a case and a team of counsellors was asked to help the girl,” police was quoted as saying by TOI.
Last month, a Ludhiana school teacher was arrested for allegedly raping a class 12 student and conspiring with a male teacher to get her abortion done when she became pregnant.
