Police said on Wednesday that a boy raped a 16-year-old girl after committing a robbery at a closed MCD school in the national capital.

Police also stated that they filed a rape and robbery FIR based on a complaint filed by the victim’s parents, who work as contractual laborers at the school.

The family also stayed at the school, which was closed for a few days, according to police.

The incident occurred on Tuesday, when the victim’s parents were not present at school, according to the investigators.

The FIR reads “On Tuesday, the parents left the school to collect their wages. The 16-year-old victim and her 18-year-old elder sister were alone. The complaint said that around 11.30 am, a boy broke into the school. He first committed a robbery and then picked up a knife from the kitchen before sexually assaulted the younger sister at knifepoint.”

According to the police, the victim’s statement has been recorded. “We’re looking for the accused,” an officer said, adding that footage from multiple CCTV cameras had been scanned.

In a statement, the official said “The police are probing the case from every angle.”
