A bright student of a Chhattisgarh school failed in Class 9, prompting her principal to conduct a counseling session to understand what was wrong.
But the school's head wasn't prepared for what the child said. The 15-year-old informed that two married men of her village had been raping her for over four years.
The minor's ordeal is bound to make everyone angry.
The incident was reported from Balod district of the state. According to a TOI report, the victim scored good marks till Class 6.
However, her grades started dropping and she eventually failed in Class 9.
One of her teachers said she lost interest in all the activities which used to excite her earlier. She seemed disinterested for the most part.
After she failed Class 9, the school's principal sat the girl down. Initially, she was hesitant but as the principal kept asking questions, she broke down and revealed what happened.
The girl was in Class 6 when a 35-year-old neighbor lured her with chocolates.
Thereafter, he beat and raped her. The survivor said she didn't know what had happened, but was in immense pain.
The victim revealed the main accused used to wait for her to return from school. He raped her when her parents were at work.
Later, he called another 30-year-old man, and both men started raping the minor, repeatedly.
The victim didn't inform anyone about the crime as the duo threatened to kill her. She kept quiet for years, and the abuse continued.
The victim said the abuse impacted her "mental balance" and subsequently, her studies.
After listening to her story, the principal consoled her. The girl's parents were informed and an FIR was registered under relevant sections of POCSO Act.
The men were arrested within hours. Notably, one of the accused had already served prison time for rape. His wife allegedly committed suicide out of shame.
