Bikaner (Rajasthan) [India], Mar. 25 (ANI): Expressing grave concern over the sexual assault of a minor in Bikaner, women activist Brinda Adige on Saturday demanded that the accused must be booked under The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act 2012 and the school management be booked under criminal negligence. "All these people need to be booked under POSCO and the administration should be booked for criminal negligence," Adige told ANI Meanwhile, former National Commission for Women (NCW) member Shamina Shafiq dubbed the incident as shocking and demanded that this case must be dealt very vigilantly. "It's a very shocking incident, but at the same time I would like to say that one needs to investigate the case very properly because the case perhaps seems to be of 2015 and has been reported now in 2017," she said. The matter came into light after the minor girl's father alleged that his daughter was raped by eight teachers of a private school who also made a video of the heinous act. The alleged incident occurred in April 2015 and the FIR was registered on Friday after the girl's father gave a complaint to the police. (ANI)
