The city's paedophiles struck again on Tuesday, this time brutalizing a four-year-old girl who was allegedly raped by staff at her school in Jalahalli. The city police top brass reacted swiftly, rushed to the spot in the night as soon as the complaint was registered, and have detained six people for questioning.
Though the police have filed a case of rape and sexual assault under several sections of CrPC and Proctection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, they are still verifying whehter it was a sexual assault or a physical assault.
The incident was allegedly reported as having taken place at Orchids The International School near HMT Theatre in HMT Colony Sector-2 in Jalahalli police station limits.
Police said that the girl, a kindergarten student in the school, complained of severe pain in her private parts after she reached home. Her mother found the child was bleeding profusely and took her to a private hospital, where the doctors examined the girl and informed the mother that her daughter had been raped. Immediately, the horrified parents went to Jalahalli police station and filed a complaint.

"The police swiftly rushed to the school and alerted senior officials about the incident. Information was gathered about the number of teaching and non-teaching staff in the school and we are investigating," the police added.
A police source said that the girl told the parents that an 'uncle' misbehaved with her. This made police suspect the role of the non-teaching staff, although some teachers have also been detained.
City police commissioner, M N Reddi, said that the investigation was in progress even as he confirmed that the girl had been sexually assaulted on Tuesday. "We have detained six suspects and we are questioning them. We will find the man who did it," he said.
