“The state school education department is looking in the matter and those who are guilty will not be spared,” she said.

The incident took place on November 30 when a four-year-old girl studying at GD Birla School was allegedly lured by the physical education teachers to the toilet and sexually assaulted.

When the victim reached home, her mother noticed blood stains all over her uniform. She started crying inconsolably and told her mother that ‘Sir bathroom re Dustumi Korechhey (Sir did something wrong to me)’. A medical examination had confirmed

On Monday morning, a large number of parents gathered in front of the school and blocked the road in front of it. They demanded the immediate arrest of the school principal.

The girl’s father has also lodged a complaint against school principal Sharmila Nath at Jadavpur Police station. He accused her of suppressing the matter and not taking adequate security measures for the students.

So far two teachers - Abhishek Roy and Mohammed Mofizul – have been arrested. They were booked under sections 4 and 6 of POSCO act, which could lead to a maximum sentence of life imprisonment. The girl was shown pictures of four teachers and the girl identified two of them immediately.
