LUD­HI­ANA: In the case of a 16-yearold school­girl’s rape in a govern­ment school in Ja­graon sub­di­vi­sion, in­ves­ti­ga­tors on Wed­nes­day claimed to have found that the of­fi­ci­at­ing prin­ci­pal made a fake en­try in the move­ment reg­is­ter of Jan­uary 27 last year, when the teach­ers took her for a preg­nancy scan. Po­lice have al­ready ar­rested the scan cen­tre owner and found that the record there too was de­stroyed and re­placed with a fake en­try that she was brought to di­ag­nose an ail­ment.

Also, the main ac­cused Pun­jabi teacher and a co-ac­cused math teacher took two along other girls from the school to dis­pel any sus­pi­cions. How­ever, the two other girls did not know about the preg­nancy, po­lice said. In the move­ment reg­is­ter, con­fis­cated by cops, the math teacher is shown to have gone to an­other govern­ment school as exam ob­server. SSP Sur­jit Singh said, “Owner of the scan cen­tre, Dr Par­min­der Singh Sandhu, has deleted the record of the scan from the ma­chine.” Also, two day be­fore the scan, the two teach­ers had al­legedly gone to the cen­tre in Raikot on Jan­uary 25 to fix an ap­pointment.
