Kannur: Five people have been arrested in connection with the alleged sexual assault of a 15-year-old school girl by several people over different days at various places in Kannur district after enticing her through social media, the police said on Wednesday.

The tenth standard girl was taken to a lodge at Parasinikadavu, a temple town on the banks of Valapattnam river in the district and allegedly sexually assaulted by four of the accused on November 19.

The fifth accused, the lodge manager, was arrested for failing to inform police of the offence, Thaliparambu Deputy Superintendent of Police P K V Venugopal said.

Based on the girl's statement, the first FIR was lodged and a case under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act registered, the police said.

The minor's statement was recorded before the Thaliparambu magistrate Tuesday, in which she has revealed "15 other offences," Venugopal told PTI.

Fifteen cases have been registered in different police limits in the district, police said.
