A 65-year-old private school principal, who was arrested on Friday for allegedly forcing a 7-year-old schoolgirl to perform oral sex on him multiple times, has now offered a defence that is as shocking and ridiculous as his crime.
Principal of Tilaiya Public School S Xavier admitted in front of media his crime but then came his defence that left people livid with shock. The accused first brushed sexually abusing the girl off as a mistake.
Then the old man branded his ‘mistake’ of forcing the little to perform oral sex on him as a small with a justification. Xavier said as there was “no intercourse” his crime can only be considered as a small one.
The indecencies of the principal, who has been booked under POCSO act and sent to judicial custody, was exposed on November 29 when the girl narrated her ordeal to her parents when she was abused again by Xavier.
Her parents immediately gave a complaint to the police in which they said their daughter perfectly explained what happened with her over the past days. She told them that the principal, who doubled-up as an English teacher, took her to the school’s washroom and undressed himself before her and then forcibly removed all her clothes.
He then threatened the scared girl, made her obey him and forced her perform oral sex, like the previous time, as told by the girl’s parents. The girl was sent for medical examination and a special drive has been launched by the district administrations in Jharkhand to check security systems in school.
