“At the hospital, her father pleaded with her to confide in him. She said she had been warned that she would die if she did, but the father assured her that nothing would happen to her.
She narrated how the teacher lured her into a classroom and raped her. He went with her to the school and charged the management to also conduct a test on her to justify her claim.
The matter was later reported at the Sabo Police Division, leading to Mudashir’s arrest.”
