Court notice to Goa cops in minor's rape case

Panaji, Feb 13 (IANS) A Goa court Wednesday issued notice to investigators in a minor schoolgirl's rape to explain why the school's headmistress, class teacher and a head clerk should not be charged for destroying evidence.

Headmistress Sharlet Furtado, class teacher Disha Kavthankar and head clerk Brazina Godinho, all women, have been accused by the seven-year-old victim's father of cleaning his daughter's private parts and a school toilet, where the incident allegedly took place last month, before informing police.

In his petition before the Goa Children's Court, the victim's father sought a direction to file a first information report (FIR) against the trio for "criminal conspiracy and destruction of evidence after the rape".
