Raipur, August 1: In another case of sexual assault, a school teacher of a government school in Chattisgarh allegedly raped a minor girl. According to a tweet by ANI, the brutal incident took place in Chattisgarh's Rajnandgaon city. Reports inform that apart from raping the minor, the teacher has also molested nine other girls. A case has been registered into the matter and an investigation has been initiated.

This is not the first time that the accused teacher had sexually exploited minor girls. Earlier this month, a similar incident was reported from Jharkhand where a school teacher was arrested by the Jharkhand Police for allegedly raping a minor student. According to an ANI report, the teacher had later forced her to abort the foetus.

The police registered a complaint against the accused under POCSO act following a complaint by the victim. The SHO, Chatra, Ram Awadh Singh, told ANI that he would call for strict action against the accused.

In another similar case of sexual assault, a 65-year-old religious teacher was arrested earlier this month for allegedly raping of an eight-year-old girl in a village in Darbhanga district in Bihar.  The police officer handling the case told ANI that the victim suffered serious injuries to her private parts. "We have arrested Mohammad Mozib-ur Rahman and has initiated an investigation into the matter", she added.
