Rajkot: A madrasa teacher, who allegedly raped a student for four years, has been booked by police in Kutch district of Gujarat.
The rape survivor, who is now 19-year-old, had recently got married. Her husband encouraged the girl to file a rape complaint against the accused teacher.
According to a report in Times of India, a complaint was filed against the teacher at Nara police station under Nakhatrana taluka of Kutch district.
In her complaint, the victim stated that she was sent to the madrasa to learn Urdu and Arabic when she was 15-year-old.
Narrating her ordeal, the girl said that one day in 2015, the accused moulana identified as Samsuddin Haji Suleman Jat gave his clothes to her for a wash and sent her to the bathroom after the class got over.
“The moulana immediately came from behind and raped me. He also threatened me not to disclose anything about the incident or else he would tarnish my character,” the girl stated in her complaint.
In a similar incident in June last year, a seminary teacher was arrested and sent to jail for allegedly raping his minor student at Naubasta area of Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh. The victim was a student at a madrasa at Awas Vikas Hanspuram.
Later, a medical examination confirmed rape of the student. Police had also seized clothes of the cleric for forensic investigation.
According to the police, the accused cleric picked the student from her home on the pretext of filling her scholarship form and took her to the seminary and raped her. Police said that other students in the seminary were very scared following the incident.
