BUNDI (Rajasthan): A 16-year-old girl was allegedly raped by her school lecturer for about five months in Lakshmipura village in Bundi, police said on Thursday.

The lecturer, Ramesh Kumar Nayak, about five months ago, had threatened the victim, a class XI student, that he will upload her photos on internet and on this pretext has raped her five-six times in a nearby jungle, Talera police station SHO, Jitendra Singh said.

Nayak, who was a Hindi subject lecturer at a secondary school, was promoted as principal and transferred to a school in Ramgangbalaji village two months ago, however, he has been in constant touch with the girl, Singh said.

The victim, in her complaint, has alleged that despite being a winter break in school, the accused had called the girl five days ago and raped her in the jungle, he said.

Seeing the deteriorating condition of their daughter while plunging into depression, her parents enquired about it and the girl narrated her ordeal to them, Singh said.

The victim on Wednesday along with her parents approached the police station and lodged a complaint against the accused, who has gone absconding since then, he said.

The accused, a resident of Bundi, was booked under section 376 of the IPC and relevant sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, he said.

The victim's medical examination was conducted last evening in a government-run hospital in Bundi. The efforts are on to arrest the accused, the SHO said.
