Hyderabad: The Director-cum-principal of a school, who was arrested by city police for allegedly raping a teenaged student, was today sent to judicial custody till August 5 by a local court.

Mohd Salahuddin Ayub, arrested yesterday by the Central Crime Station (CCS), a wing of Hyderabad City Police, was produced before the XII ACMM court which sent him to 14-day judicial remand, a senior police officer said.

Detective Department DCP J Satyanarayana said that they had collected enough evidence, including scientific proof, against the school director to prove the allegations.

"The medical reports suggested that the girl was sexually assaulted. We have questioned several persons, including students, at the school about the incident. We have seized some intimate photos and a revolver from the director," the senior officer said.

Ayub, who lived in a penthouse on the premises of the residential international school located at Manneguda in the neighbouring Ranga Reddy district, had allegedly sexually assaulted the 17-year-old girl over 20 times since March this year.

The director had raped her on gunpoint and threatened her with dire consequences if she revealed about the matter, the XI standard student, a native of Mumbai, had alleged in a complaint lodged by her parents with the police.

"One day the director asked me to come to his room and offered a cool drink laced with some drug and I fell unconscious after drinking it. When I gained consciousness the director showed me my naked photographs and regularly sexually assaulted me by blackmailing," the girl alleged.

The director, who is a resident of Banjara Hills here had even administered her pills to abort her pregnancy and also brought her to a hospital for the purpose of abortion, the girl complained.

The girl demanded that the director be hanged for his crime and further alleged that several other girls had also been sexually assaulted by the director.

In a similar development, an eighth-standard girl in the school, a Korean national, gave a statement alleging that the director misbehaved with her by asking her to sit on his lap and even asked her to massage him. Though, no case was lodged in this matter, so far.

Meanwhile, the school director termed these allegations as false.

"It's (allegations of rape) is a big conspiracy and it is false. I am not going to reply to any of the questions at this moment but I will come out and speak at the right time," Ayub, told reporters, while he was being shifted to a hospital for examination, prior to being produced before the court.

The school authorities have already described the charges against its director as "malicious" campaign.
