Nagpur: A 10-year-old Indian girl was raped by a youth on the premises of her school here on Tuesday morning. The Dispatch News Desk reports.
Deputy Commissioner of Police, Nagpur, Sanjay Darade said, “The girl is very young, so we are trying to get her to give us clues about the culprit. But what we know is a youth had approached her when she was sitting alone on the premises of her school. The youth then raped her. We are told she had come about 40 minutes before the school opened.” Darade said that 10 teams had been formed to nab the culprit.
Asked if the school’s watchman didn,t notice anything, Darade said, “He says he opened the school late. However, he is very much a part of our investigation.” The police said they were also questioning school authorities. The girl’s parents are labourers.
