In a shocking incident, a minor girl accused her school principal, teachers and students of raping her for the last seven months. She said that firstly a fellow classmate raped her and made a video clip.
Police sources said an FIR had been registered in the case under Sections 376 (rape) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC and the POCSO Act. "The 14 other accused are absconding". The school principal and a teacher of the school were arrested and two students have been detained on Friday.

She then went to the police stations and filed a complaint against the culprits. The Saran police took two more named accused into custody on Saturday in connection with the case.
