Chandigarh, India: A 15-year-old mentally-handicapped girl was allegedly raped by two of her school teachers over several months in Haryana’s Bhiwani district, sparking off protests by angry villagers outside the government school after the incident came to light. The Dispatch News Desk (DND) reported.

The girl had been repeatedly raped by the two teachers for past several months and the accused even got her abortion done with the help of two nurses, police sources said on Thursday.

The incident came to light when the victim developed some medical complications following the abortion, they said. The girl’s family members along with the Dudhwa village residents protested outside the school yesterday and blocked the main door, locking in some of the staff members.

The police faced a tough time pacifying the victim’s family and the villagers, who were demanding exemplary punishment against the accused. “We have registered a case against the accused and further investigations are under progress. They have not been arrested so far and we have launched a vigorous hunt to nab them,” Bhiwani’s Superintendent of Police, Mithlesh Jain, told a news agency over the phone.

Among the two accused teachers, one is a physical training instructor.
