Rajasthan: 8 teachers accused of raping minor girl in Bikaner

In a shocking case, a 13-year-old girl was allegedly raped, abused, and blackmailed for over one and a half years by 8 teachers of a private school in Rajasthan's Bikaner. As per police, the incident took place in April and an FIR was logged against the same on March 24 after girl’s father gave a complaint to the superintendent of police. FIR was registered under Section 376-D of the Indian Penal Court (IPC) for gangrape and other related sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses (POCSO) Act.
Congress leader Sachin Pilot on Saturday said Rajasthan’s Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje was unable to provide security to women. Mr. Pilot also demanded a check on “anti-social elements.” “In Rajasthan, we have a Chief Minister who is a woman. Despite being a woman Chief Minister, she is not able to give a sense of security to our sisters and mothers and women in the State,” Mr. Pilot said. Expressing concern over the sexual assault of the minor, women activist Brinda Adige demanded that the accused be booked under the POCSO Act, and the school management booked for criminal negligence.
