A schoolgirl was repeatedly raped by her teacher in the Indian state of Rajasthan for the past few months.
Finding herself under threat from the teacher, the girl suffered a breakdown and had to be treated for psychological trauma in a hospital.
Detailed medical examination showed that the 11-year-old had been sexually abused and was scared of talking about the ordeal, reports news agency Press Trust of India.
The doctors and the girls’ parents were able to gain her confidence and she revealed to them how she was sexually abused by her teacher who had threatened to kill her if she revealed the incidents to anyone.
The girl had been suffering for two months before she was hospitalised.
