He said that medical examination of the girl has been done but it was inconclusive. CCTV footage of the cameras at the school is being examined.

No arrest has been made so far and the matter is under investigation, he said.

The incident comes in the backdrop of heightened concern over the safety of children in schools in the wake of a spate of attacks, including the killing of a seven-year-old boy in a school in Gurugram, Haryana.
