Bangalore school rape: Office assistant, 45, arrested

BANGALORE: The Bangalore police on Saturday arrested a 45-year-old office assistant at an international school in connection with a sexual assault on a four-year-old pre-nursery student. The accused has been identified as Gundappa Munivenkatappa, 45, of AK Colony in Jalahalli North Bangalore.

The arrest was made on the basis of medical evidence, statements by the child, and a confession by the suspect, police commissioner MN Reddi said.

“The case is still under investigation and we can’t disclose more details. We have recorded the confession statement of the accused person before the concerned magistrate under the provisions of section 164 of the Criminal Procedure Code,” Reddi said.

The commissioner said the case proved a tough one to crack because the victim was a four-year-old and obtaining her statements were not easy.

Reddi said that the school did not have clearances from the education department for imparting education. The police have registered a separate case about the school functioning without permits.
