3-year-old Girl Sexually Abused in Bangalore

Bangalore, Oct 22: Protests once again rocked the IT hub after a three-year-old girl was allegedly sexually abused in her school on Tuesday. The incident reported barely a month after 6-year-old girl was gangraped at a school in the city.

City Police Commissioner M N Reddi has ordered a probe by ACP (Malleshwaram) Sarah Fatima following the complaint was lodged on Tuesday.

The case was registered under sections 4 and 6 of the Pocso Act (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012) and section 376 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against the unidentified suspect(s).

According to the complaint, the mother of the victim found her crying and behaving abnormal when she went to pick her up from the school in the evening.

The girl had fever and she complained to her mother that she was physically abused by someone she did not know. The victim was in her nursery class when the incident occurred.

The incident sparked protests from the parents, who gathered at the school campus on Wednesday demanding answers from the school management.

This is the third such incident happened in a school campus in recent months in Bangalore, indicating that the little girls are not safe in the schools. Earlier, an eight year-old girl was allegedly sexually assaulted by her 63-year-old teacher inside her school premises over a period of time. Recently in August, the gangrape of a six-year-old girl, belonging to Odisha, at a school had evoked public outrage.
