“The police have arrested the teachers on the basis of strong evidence,” a senior police official Chandan Kushwaha told the media today.

Police plan to take the jailed teachers on remand again for interrogation.

The police have arrested the teachers after the victim’s parents filed a complaint with the police when the school administration didn’t appear serous over the incident.

In her complaint, the victim’s parents have charged the female teachers with indulging in “unnatural sex” with the LKG girl student in the school’s rest room. “Badi Mam would guard at the room gate while the Chhoti Mam would do ‘ganda kam’ (bad act),” was how the girl told the parents, prompting them to file a case.

Medical tests of the student too have confirmed sexual assault of the little girl. Police apprehend the accused teachers may have been running the pedophilia racket.

On Friday, the victim student and her parents got their statements recorded in a local court. Apart from this, a forensic team also visited the school premises and collected evidence from the spot.

The National Commission for Women while taking cognizance of the case has sought a detailed report from the police.

“It’s shameful to know such dirty acts taking place in a temple of learning,” said Commission member Sushma Sahu.
