A bus attendant of a well-known private school has been arrested for sexually abusing a 6-year old girl for more than a fortnight.

The parents of the Class I student lodged a police complaint after Lotus National School authorities refused to take action against the attendant. The father is an executive in a multinational company and the mother a doctor.

Police said the incident came to light on November 28 when the girl came home bleeding profusely. When asked, she told her mother that the attendant assaulted her in the bus everyday.

Her parents approached school principal Renuka Raju the same day. But as the school did not take any action till December 6, they approached the police on Friday.

The police have booked the attendant under section 354 IPC( outraging modesty)and 506 (criminal intimidation).

Soon after the news spread, activists of the Telengana Rastra Samithi and various student organisations attacked and ransacked the school. The principal had locked the school and left.
