The parents of a six-year-old girl in Ranchi have alleged that a private school asked them to pull her out of the institution because she is a rape victim.
According to the girl’s stepmother, the six-year-old and her stepsister were admitted to R N G Public School last Wednesday. “On Saturday, when I went to fetch the children from school, I was asked by the principal to return her fee receipt. On Monday, the principal told me I should not bring my daughter because she is a rape victim. This led to an hour-long argument,” said the stepmother.
