BENGALURU: RT Nagar police on Saturday detained a female teacher who is accused of ‘abusing’ a five-year-old girl at a private school on Dinnur Main Road. The incident came to light on Friday and the girl’s parents have charged the teacher with sexual abuse.

The police have filed a case under the POCSO Act. On Saturday, hundreds of parents rushed to the school and staged a protest against the management for not taking adequate security measures. They also sought immediate action against the teacher.

A senior police officer said the girl’s parents had found her in their house with her nose bleeding and complaining of pain in her private parts. She said a 30-year-old teacher had beaten her.

The girl was later sent for a medical test and the police are awaiting the results. 

The accused has allegedly confessed to verbally reprimanding the girl for not doing her homework, but has denied beating her.

Kamalaksh Shetty, an office-bearer at the school, denied the allegations of sexual assault and corporal punishment. “The child used to come by an auto and on that day, she left the school  around 2.30 pm. We have also inquired with other students and no such incident was reported,” he said.

Orchids Chargesheet Filed

City police on Saturday filed a 140-page chargesheet in the Orchids rape case at the City Civil and Sessions Court. A three-year-old was raped at the Jalahalli school on October 21. Office assistant Gundappa (45) was arrested. The chargesheet contains statements of school staff, the girl’s parents, circumstantial evidence and the medical report.
