Bangalore Rape Case: CM orders Action against School Management

Bangalore, Oct.24: Taking serious note of the recent incident of sexual abuse of a three-year-old nursery student in Bangalore, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has instructed police officials to initiate prompt action against the school management.

"The investigation is going on. I have told the police and the education department to initiate action against the management of the institution," Siddaramaiah told media.

A three-year-old LKG student of a private school in Bangalore was allegedly raped by her school teacher earlier this week. The girl was subjected to medical tests on Tuesday before being admitted to a private hospital.

Bangalore Police had earlier on Thursday detained a suspect and filed a criminal complaint against the school.

This incident had erupted protests by angry parents and locals, barely three months after a 6-year-old girl belonging to Odisha was allegedly raped by two gym instructors inside the premises of another private school in Bangalore on July 3.
