Balasore, November 22 (LocalWire): Alleging sexual assault on their daughter in the school premises, parents of a 15-year old girl, a student of a private residential school in Soro, have demanded a high-level investigation into the matter.
The parents have also alleged that neither the school authorities nor the police has taken any action in the matter even though their daughter has been admitted at the ICU of SCB Medical College and Hospital since 11 November 2019.
“Our daughter is in critical condition. She was sexually assaulted on the campus on seventh of this month and we are yet to get justice in the matter.
The school authorities are trying to suppress the mater and there has been no action by the police so far,” the parents said.
Talking to the media on Thursday, the parents sought the intervention of the chief minister and a high-level inquiry, at least, by the crime branch to unearth the truth.
“The school teachers threatened her not to divulge anything to anyone.
In fact, when we reached school, they told us that she got afflicted with a bad spirit during her visit to Baripada recently and advised us to seek the help of a sorcerer,” the parents stated.
According to the parents, they got a call from the school on 7 November informing that their daughter was unwell. When they rushed to the school, the girl hinted about the incident there and their younger daughter divulged about her sister’s ordeals to parents and relatives.
Later the parents filed a complaint on 11 November and an FIR of gang rape was registered by the police.
Although the police were tight-lipped about the incident, sources reveal that they have intensified the probe and had conducted medical examinations of four students from the school, and interrogated some teachers.
