The principal of an international school here has been arrested on charges of raping a Class 11 student from Mumbai, police said Thursday. The victim had become pregnant.
A case of rape and criminal intimidation has been booked against Salahuddin Ayub, principal of Parkwood International School at Manneguda near Vikarabad on the outskirts of Hyderabad.
According to Deputy Commissioner of Police, Central Crime Station (CCS), J. Satyanarayana, investigations into the complaint were on.
The CCS sleuths were questioning the principal and collecting scientific evidence to build the case against him, the officer said. The parents of the girl from Mumbai alleged that she was repeatedly raped by the principal during the last one year.
The principal had allegedly threatened the girl with dire consequences if she said anything to anyone. The girl’s family complained after she reportedly became pregnant.
Investigating officials visited the school and the principal’s house and other places where the girl was sexually exploited.
Angry parents of some students staged a protest outside the school demanding stern action against the principal. Police and private security personnel had a tough time in controlling the crowd, which barged into the premises and damaged window panes. Women’s organisations have also demanded punishment to the guilty.
However, the school authorities have denied the allegations against the principal and said they were aimed at defaming the school, which has branches in the Middle East.
Meanwhile, the education department has also ordered a probe against the principal.
Meanwhile, the Congress on Thursday demanded the resignation of Gujarat minister of state for Home Amit Shah after he was been summoned by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for the alleged fake shootout of Sohrabuddin Sheikh.
Congress spokesman Manish Tewari said: “It is a matter between the accused, investigative agency and the court. All that we are interested in is that justice should be done.”
Tewari said that the summons to the Gujarat minister had created a constitutional peculiarity.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) minister Shah was on Thursday summoned by the CBI in connection with the 2005 killing in Ahmedabad.
The Gujarat government reacted cautiously to the development, with its spokesperson and Health Minister Jaynarayan Vyas saying that the law will take its own course.
“It does create a serious and profound constitutional peculiarity that a minister who is entrusted with upholding the rule of law in a province of the country is summoned for questioning in an alleged fake encounter case which is essentially an acronym for murder,” he Tewari said, adding that the party leaves it to the BJP to take a decision about continuation of Shah as a minister.
