A four-and-a-half-year-old boy has been accused for raping a classmate with a pencil inside the classroom as well as the washroom of a prominent private school in Delhi’s Dwarka.
The parents of the girl have alleged in their complaint to the police that after returning from school on Friday last, she complained of pain in her private parts. The child told her mother that a boy in her class “opened her pants and put his finger inside”. She also said the boy “sharpened his pencil and put it in too”.
“She tried pushing him, but could not get away as other children had left and there was no staff around,” the mother stated in the first information report (FIR).
The police have registered a rape case, but they are reportedly consulting legal experts on how to proceed against such a young accused; a child below seven cannot be charged under law.
Since her daughter’s pain did not subside, she rushed her to a hospital where she was treated as well as a medico-legal case made. A police case was then registered.
Though the girl has complained that there were none at that time, but the lawyer for the school stated that an ayah is appointed in every washroom.
