Raped minor pregnant, headmaster arrested

By Biplab Kr Dey

TURA, April 7 - In another sordid story of rape of a minor, a 37 year-old teacher of an Sarva Siksha Abhiyan Upper Primary school in Maguapara raped a minor who visited his house to watch television.

The incident came to light after complaints were received by an NGO, with the family choosing to remain silent due to fear. The village falls under Dalu block and is about 45 kms from Tura in West Garo Hills.

The minor girl of 14 was raped twice by the teacher, identified as Kithin D Shira, who is also the headmaster of the school. Shira was arrested today by Dalu police after an FIR was filed against him this morning. Originally a resident of Purakhasia, Shira had married in Maguapara and was a neighbour of the victim.

According to sources, in the first instance, Shira took advantage of the girl when she came to watch television in his house. Shira gagged the girl before raping the minor. He later beat her up threatening the minor with dire consequences if she disclosed the incident to anyone. This happened on November 17 last year.

Three days later on November 20, Shira went to the house of the girl when a Church service was going on and again forced himself on her, after bringing her to his house.

�She is now pregnant with his child but when the family went to confront him, he denied his role. The girl is from a poor background. The family is scared and did not want to come forward with a complaint. We ensured that an FIR was lodged,� said Mother�s Union, Dalu, general secretary, Archana Marak. �We condemn the act in the harshest words,� added Marak.
