The rot had run so deep that the school management used every ploy to hush up the case. The suspect was a non-teaching staffer, recruited without any verification of his background.

The shocking incident comes two weeks after a youth reportedly tried to bury alive a two-and-a-half-year-old girl after raping her at Vannur village in Bailhongal taluk of the district on September 9. In the latest incident, the suspect, Uddappa Ramappa Ganiger (32), turned out be a close relative of the girl.
