“The victim has been sent to Katwa hospital for medical test,” said SMH Mirza, Burdwan police superintendent.
“The girl came running into my room and broke into tears. I called the women teachers and telephoned her father and the police,” said school headmaster Ramnarayan Hazra.
Locals told HT that criminals had a free run in the area.
Katwa had shot to headlines on February 26 when a woman was raped and CM Mamata Banerjee alleged her husband was a CPM activist who was trying to malign her government. The husband, however, had died 11 years ago.
