The incident came to light when the five-year-old victim reached home after school. Her mother noticed she was bleeding while changing her clothes and took her to a local hospital. She has now been shifted to RML Hospital; doctors say her condition is critical.
The victim's father said the doctors told him to file a FIR after observing the girl. He was glad the police quickly arrested the peon; he wants them to take strict action against him. He added Tagore Public School has not taken any action. A case under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act was registered; police are investigating the matter.
