Minor girl allegedly gang-raped in school washroom in Delhi

Kerala: 19-Year-Old model raped in moving car in Kochi

An 11-year-old girl in Delhi says she was gang-raped in a school bathroom by two older boys from the same school. The incident came to light after the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) issued notices to school authorities and the Delhi police.

According to the DCW notice, the incident occurred in July when the 11-year-old girl was on her way to her classroom when she bumped into two boys who go to the same school and study in class 11-12, making them between 16 and 18 years old.

The alleged incident had taken place in July, but was flagged as a “serious matter” by DCW only after the victim approached police on Tuesday.

Demanding strict action, DCW President Swati Maliwal said: “We have received a very serious case of gang rape involving an 11-year-old student inside a school in Delhi.”

He added: “The girl has alleged that her school teacher tried to hush up the matter. It is very unfortunate that even schools are unsafe for children in the capital. Furthermore, an investigation should be carried out into the role of school authorities in the theme.”

In a statement, DCW President Swati Maliwal said: “We have received a very serious case of gang rape involving a…student inside a school in Delhi. The girl has alleged that her school teacher tried to hush up the matter. It is very unfortunate that even schools are unsafe for children in the capital.

“Strict measures must be taken in the matter. In addition, an investigation should be conducted into the role of the school authorities in the matter… The commission has asked the school principal to report when the school authorities became aware of the matter and what action they took.”

The commission has asked the Delhi Police to file an FIR (First Information Report), which is the first step in any police investigation in India. He has also asked the school authorities to take action against the accused.

However, no arrests have yet been made.

New Delhi District Commissioner of Police (DCP) Amruth Guguloth told The Indian Express that they had received a complaint and immediately registered a case under the sections of sexual assault and Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses Act (POCSO).
