    Police said the father of the girl had dropped her at school in the morning and later in the day he got a phone call from school authorities that the child was crying. The father was later told that a boy had misbehaved with the girl following which he took her home. However, on reaching home, the girl complained of severe pain and narrated the incident to her mother.

    The police was subsequently approached and a FIR under section 376 IPC (punishment for rape) and under the provisions of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences was registered against the accused.

    Many protesting parents claimed that after committing the crime, the accused took away the DVR (recording unit of CCTV camera) installed inside school premises. They also alleged that the incident happened due to negligence of the school management and demanded a case be registered against them. "Investigations are underway," the DSP said.
