Baghpat: In a shocking incident, a Class 3 student was allegedly raped by a Class 6 boy of her school and his two younger brothers, reported IANS.

She was allegedly raped inside the toilet of a government primary school in a village in Ramala region of Baghpat.

 

The local police refused to file an FIR for 15 days. Station House Officer (SHO) Naresh Kumar also tried to force the survivor's father to drop the charges.

The matter came to light on Monday evening, when the girl's health began deteriorating and senior police officials were informed of the SHO's behaviour. He was removed by the district police chief thereafter and has since been hospitalised.

The police later filed an FIR against all three under IPC Section 376 (rape) and the POCSO Act. The girl has been sent for medical examination and the report is awaited.

According to girl's uncle: "From beginning, we were asked to remain silent. A day after the incident took place, about a fortnight ago, we had visited the teacher in the school, but she behaved as if nothing had happened. Since the accused also belonged to the same village, we were under great pressure from the panchayat elders not to take the matter to the police as it would bring a bad name to the village. The local SHO was hell-bent on ensuring a compromise. During all this, the girl's health was continuously deteriorating after which we approached the Baghpat SP with our complaint."
