The two accused have been booked for rape and detained by police, who will seek the court’s permission for their polygraph test. “We have not got any clue on the complainant so far. Since this is a serious matter, we don’t want to leave any lapses in investigation. The polygraph test will help us in knowing the truth. If the court allows, we may go ahead with the test on Tuesday only,” Gohana SHO Kuldeep Singh told HT.

He said the police are trying to locate the origin of the anonymous letter, which they had received through a local media office. He said school students were on Monday given counselling by experts to come forward if they know any details in the case.

The police also searched for records of any girl students who night have quit the school recently. Meanwhile, the school management has shrugged off the allegation calling it a conspiracy of their competitors to defame the name of their institute.
