A minor school girl committed in Rajouri district, about 100-km from Jammu town, committed after she was allegedly gang raped by person running private school, his two colleagues and a student.

Seema(name changed) committed suicide on July 24 at her home in village Khargal.

The residents of the area blocked Rajour-Jammu highway for seven-hour.

Family members of the Seema told police that, Seema had told her mother that she was called to school by a student Wasim and other person Jaffar, who runs a private Netaji Memorial Academy in village Khargal on July 20

She said though summer holidays were goings, Wasim told her that she has to come to the school for important work.

Seema told her mother that she was forcibly put in a car and taken to an isolated place where Wasim, Ifthikar Hussain and Aurngzaeb raped her and left her there. She said the accused threatened her of dire consequences if she tells about the incidents to any one.

Family members said Seema narrated the incident to her mother, who disclosed it other members of the family, who decided to lodge a formal police complaint. The family members alleged that local SHO of the area refused to lodged a complaint.

Feeling humiliated and frustrated, Seema consumed some poisonous material on July 23. She was immediately taken to the district hospital and as her condition got critical she was taken to Government Medical College Jammu where she died on Wednesday.

“The police have detained two accused. We are waiting for medical report after which a formal case would be registered and action against the accused would be taken,” said sub-district magistrate Nowshera Rajinder Khajuria.

ASP Nowshera Purshotam Singh said on the complaint of the locals, case has been registered against five accused.

The locals kept the body of the deceased at highway and blocked the traffic. The protestors demanded the cancellation of the registration of the private school and suspension of local SHO.

The protest was lifted after assurance of the local administration.
