Nadapuram: A case has been registered against Perod Abdurahman Saqafi, the secretary of Sirajul Huda Educational Complex, for allegedly making an abusive statement against a four-and-a-half year old sexual assault victim of the school at Parakkadavu, Nadapuram.
The case has been registered on a complaint filed by the victim’s father.
The sexual assault took place on October 30. The incident came to light after the girl complained of nausea and pain the day after the incident.
Two senior students at a private school were arrested on November 15 in connection with the incident. They were charged under IPC 376 (rape) and relevant provisions of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act.
The delay in the arrest had sparked strong public protests in the area with political parties and social activists accusing police of trying to shield the real culprits.
