Ghaziabad: A driver and a conductor of a school bus have been arrested for allegedly sodomising a Standard Ist girl student.

The accused were allegedly indulging in the act since the last 15 days, but the incident came to light when the girl complained to her mother of "swelling in her private parts," City Superintendent of Police, R N Yadav, said.

Medical examination by a doctor her mother took her to confirm that the minor had been sodomised, Yadav said, adding that the girl named the accused of doing "wrong things to her."

The bus, where the duo allegedly physically abused the minor, has been hired by the school on contract basis.     

Both the accused have been arrested after the victim’s parents lodged a complaint. They have allegedly confessed to the crime.

Indirapuram Police have registered a case under section 377 (carnal intercourse against the order of nature) and section 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against them.
