Seven-year-old raped in Goa school
Panaji: A seven-year-old girl was raped at her school in the port town of Vasco, resulting in huge protests here Monday night.
Police have detained the headmistress of the school on charges of negligence.
The second grade student was sexually abused in the school toilet next to the office of the headmistress during recess yesterday, by an unidentified person, police said on Tuesday.
The incident came to light after the minor complained of pain and was referred for medical examination.
Several parents and locals protested outside the school last night questioning the negligence on the part of the school management. As the situation turned tense, Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar visited the spot late last night assuring stern action against the accused.
"We will not spare the accused and anyone involved in this crime," Parrikar said, following which police detained the headmistress.
Police said the culprit is yet to be arrested. A sketch has been prepared based on the description provided by the victim, they said.
Incidentally, the school has been one of the well-guarded institutes with Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel posted at the gate.
