The second grade student was sexually abused in the school toilet next to the office of the headmistress during recess on Monday, 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 on Monday night questioning the negligence on the part of the school management.

As the situation turned tense, chief minister Manohar Parrikar visited the spot late Monday 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.
