Alleged friend of the victim also arrested on charges of abduction. The girl student was allegedly raped by unknown persons at Vibgyor High School under Varthur Police Station limits.

A six-year-old girl was allegedly raped by two persons at a prominent school here on July 2, according to a delayed complaint filed by the parents earlier this week. The accused are suspected to be school employees. While a physical instructor and a guard of the school have been detained, no arrests have been made yet.

The incident is reported to have happened at the Vibgyor International School in Tubarahalli near Varthur, in east Bangalore, during school hours on July 2. The parents of the child, a Class 1 student, filed the complaint on July 14, after a medical practitioner confirmed that she had been sexually abused. They had taken her to the doctor last weekend after she complained of pain.

“We received a complaint about the rape on Monday from the parents of the child and registered a case of rape against two persons,” confirmed Joint Commissioner of Police for Law and Order (East) K V Sharath Chandra. “We have questioned the staff and management,” he said.

While the child has not been able to identify her attackers, police are relying on medical tests to nail the accused.

Meanwhile, parents of students have been protesting against the school management for the last two days. Senior police officials, including ACP (Crime) Pronab Mohanty and DCP (Crime) Abhishek Goyal visited the school on Wednesday.

PTI quoted Rustom Kerawala, spokesperson for the school management, as saying, “If somebody is found guilty of raping, let him be hanged.” He said the school management was cooperating with the investigating authorities. “We are waiting for the final conclusion from authorities.”

    India you are responsible for the rapings, because you havestill not taken firm action against this "cancer" in men bodies.Castrate them, if not kill them. The bodies of girls and womenis not for public consumption. Damage their beautiful existence is theworst crime there is. It is equal as murder.

    It is a horrific news.The school authorities' response has been very callous.No insution is following values,Each one is protecting its commercial interest.The recruitment system of the so called premier insutions is so dubious that criminal elements are penetrating into them easily.There should be a thorough inquiry into the affairs of the school in question .

    The rape should never be condoned just because it was done by a secular person

    What is Lord Vishnu doing and why is he hesitating while this and other such crimes are committed? The God who saved Draupathi's dignity and boasted he will descend on earth whenever Dharma is in peril, not to be seen anywhere? Get out of Vaikyuntham and protect Dharma.

    Those who rape children should get the death penalty. No excuses. What sort of men are being born in this country? God save India.
