10 y/o dyslexic girl raped by school principal in Bengaluru

Bengaluru: The police have arrested the principal and owner of a private school for children with special needs, in Gunjur, for allegedly raping a 10-year-old dyslexic girl student.

The accused, aged 65, raped the child inside the school premises, the police said on Friday.

When the child returned home from school on Thursday, she complained of pain in the abdomen. Her mother noticed bleeding in the girl’s private parts and was rushed to the Belenus Champion Hospital in Varthur.

Based on the complaint filed by the victim’s mother, a case under relevant sections of the Protection of Children Against Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) and 376 (rape) of the Indian Penal Code was registered in connection with the incident, a senior police officer said.

The hospital authorities notified Varthur Police on the matter confirming that the alleged rape happened between 11 am and 1 pm on Thursday.

The girl suffers from dyslexia and is studying in Class 2 in the school.

The accused resides in Varthur limits and has been the principal of the school, which has about 140 students, for almost 10 years.

He has been running the school with his wife for the last 23 years and also has three daughters, who have settled in the US.

The child’s father passed away in 2020 due to health-related issues while her mother is a housewife, the police said.

Children affected with dyslexia talk in parts and are slow to respond. According to the police, the girl revealed to the mother that the principal took her to an empty classroom and abused her, after which he gave her a piece of cake asking her not to tell it to anyone.
