Doubting the story of the minor who said she had been raped by a boy on July 5 at the Sunet village government high school near here, the students and teachers on Thursday demanded that the three members of the staff suspended on Wednesday be reinstated.
A protest by the girl’s parents had forced the authorities to suspend the headmistress and two teachers. Recalling the incident, a teacher said: “Two girls were fighting over a book, so I took them to the headmistress, where a girl explained to her about the sexual assault in the third period. I was shocked that she had waited until the last period to let us know.” “A playground separates the boys’ and the girls’ toilets, so the boy couldn’t have dragged her across with 60 children watching,” said a student.
The doctor who examined the girl said she had found no injuries on her.
