A First Information Report (number 831/2022) filed in the case, which has been accessed by Rashtra Jyoti, was registered at Mussoorie police station of Ghaziabad district on 10 November 2022.
The complainant, Asma (named changed), told the police that her 13-year-old daughter studies at Madrassa Yunisia Public School in Leel Banat area in Class 6. Her husband is a daily wager.
For the past few weeks, her daughter had been unusually quiet. She barely spoke to them. She had also begun to skip her classes at the madrassa.
On 10 November, she again said she did not want to go to the madrassa. When the parents asked her the reason, she told them that the principal, Mohammed Shahadat, used to stop her after classes every day. He told her they were extra classes.
He would send Asma’s other children for work and molest her 13-year-old daughter. He did not stop there – his demands increased and he started raping her.
He did this by telling her he would buy her a new mobile phone. Over the past two months, Shahadat had raped her daughter several times.
He threatened her saying if she dared speak to anyone about the incident, he would get her siblings killed.
The complaint says that the victim and her family have been traumatised by the incident. They are in despair and request help from the police.
