Police are investigating a case involving a 15-year-old girl who was reportedly raped by her employer in Khudunabari, Jhapa.
The pregnant girl was found staying at a hotel with the aunt of her alleged rapist at a hotel in Dharan on Saturday. They had come to Dharan with the intent of aborting the baby, Deputy Superintendent of Police Dhakendra Khatiwada said.
The girl told police that she had been raped repeatedly by Bikram Gole, who runs a school in Khudunabari.
The woman, who was arrested with the girl, is the principal at the school.
The girl, who had been working as a domestic help at Gole’s house, said she was raped repeatedly in the past four months. Gole and his aunt had coerced the girl into aborting the baby after learning about the pregnancy, DSP Khatiwada said.
Police have launched a search to capture Gole.
