Shimla, Aug 1: Violent protests over a rape have once again rocked Himachal Pradesh, this time in Chamba. The protests were over the rape of a minor school girl who was repeatedly assaulted, allegedly by her teacher, over a period of time in Tissa, Chamba.

The case came to light last week, when the girl told her parents about the ordeal. The teacher, who allegedly threatened the girl with dire consequences including failing her in her exams, was later arrested.

Despite the arrest, irate locals on Sunday allegedly manhandled the staff of the school where the rape occurred and set a rain shelter and two kiosks on fire.

The protests continued on Monday, with the a mob pelting stones at a police station, injuring three cops, including an officer. The unrest forced Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh, who was scheduled to visit Tissa on Monday, to cancel his visit.

Meanwhile, police have detained four people for allegedly manhandling school staff on July 27 when a meeting between school authorities and locals was organised.

The teacher has been suspended and remains in police custody.

The Chamba protests come soon after similar violence was seen in Shimla district over an alleged gangrape and murder of a girl.
