Jaipur: An 18-year-old class 12 student, allegedly raped by a teacher and owner of a private school in a school in Rajasthan, suffered a brain haemorrhage after abortion. The accused teacher, identified as Jagat Gujjar, and owner, Jagdish Yadav, have reportedly been arrested. The police said that both the accused are being interrogated.
The victim was forced to stay back in school by the two accused on the pretext of extra classes and was raped repeatedly for about two months. When the victim got pregnant, the two forced her to go through an abortion which led to a brain haemorrhage. The botched abortion exposed the crime of the two. The police are now investigating if more students were assaulted by the two accused.
The police said that she didn’t speak about the assault on her until her condition got worse over a period of time. She was immediately rushed and admitted to a private hospital on Sunday night. The doctors who treated her informed the parents about the abortion.
A doctor in the hospital said that the victim was operated upon two times and since she wasn’t taken care of during the abortion, lack of oxygen caused damage to her brain. “It seems to be permanent damage,” DS Meena, Superintendent of Jaipur’s SMS Medical College, was quoted as saying by media.
The parents of the girl protested outside the school demanding action against it. The district administration has shut down the school for now.
A raid was conducted at a clinic where the girl’s abortion was carried out. Medical record documents of the clinic have also been seized.
