Two school students were arrested for raping a six-year-old girl and attempting to murder her at Napoklu in Kodagu district, police said on Monday.

The boys studying in class IX dragged the girl of the first standard to a toilet and raped her few days back. They subsequently tried to kill her as she began to scream, her mother said in a complaint filed with the police.

She alleged that the matter was initially hushed up by the school committee as one of the boys was the son of a police personnel.

However, the matter came to light after local NGOs took it up and lodged a complaint with the police, urging immediate action.

The boys who were arrested on Sunday, have been sent to the juvenile centre in Mangalore, the police said.
