A 17-year old girl from Rajasthan was found dead at the hostel of her college in Bikaner on Friday. Her parents have accused the physical education teacher of her college of raping and murdering her. He has been arrested by the police.
The body of the girl, who was studying to be a teacher, was found in a water tank at the hostel. Police say her post-mortem report does not clearly establish whether she drowned or was thrown into the tank. Report of viscera samples from her lungs is awaited.
The girl’s parents have alleged that she called them on Thursday evening and told them that she had been raped by her physical education teacher.
The police have registered a case of murder and rape based on their complaint. The college however claims she committed suicide.
