India school head arrested over rape
(07-23 18:16)

Police in India have arrested the head of a school where a 6-year-old girl was raped earlier this month and charged him with hindering the investigation and negligence.
M.N. Reddi, the top police official in southern Bangalore city, told reporters Wednesday that Rustom Kerawalla was charged with negligence for failing to ensure the student's safety.
Earlier this week police also arrested the school's skating instructor and charged him with attacking the child. The instructor has been teaching at the school since 2011 and Reddi says the school performed no background check while hiring him.
He gave no details on how Kerawalla hindered the investigation.
Police say the girl was assaulted July 2 when she left her classroom to go to the restroom. They say she is recovering from the attack. --AP
