A youth was arrested on Saturday on his mother’s complaint for allegedly raping a minor girl near a school at Diamond Harbour in South 24-Parganas district, police said .
“Najir Seikh, a bus conductor, was arrested after his mother Ainur Bibi lodged a complaint with the Diamond Harbour police station after rescuing the seven-year-old girl yesterday,” Sub-Divisional Police Officer (SDPO) Rupantar Sengupta said.
Ainur Bibi came to know about the incident after Nazir talked about it after returning home in a drunken state, Sengupta said.
Najir and three others had allegedly raped a class-1 student when she had gone outside the school to urinate as the school toilet was closed. She was left unconscious near a bush.
“After hearing about the incident Ainur Bibi rushed to rescue the girl. She took the girl to Diamond Harbour hospital and then lodged a complaint against her son with the police,” the SDPO said.
The family members and other guardians gathered at the school authorities and demanded the toilet be opened immediately.
