LUCKNOW: A music teacher raped a three-year-old girl of a private playgroup school in Aashiana. When police were reportedly pressured by the survivor's family, they got a medical test and arrested the miscreant once rape was confirmed.
According to police, when she returned from school on Wednesday, the survivor complained of irritation in her private parts to her mother.
Her mother took her to a hospital to consult doctor. The doctors detected swelling in the child's private parts and asked her mother what could have happened to her.
It was then that the girl told her mother about the sexual assault on her. The girl also told the doctor it was a school teacher who was responsible.
The survivor's family reached the school and complained to its principal. They also informed the police about the same.

Pawan was then arrested after the medical test confirmed rape," he said.
