NEW DELHI — Thousands of people angry over alleged police inaction after a 6-year-old girl was raped at her school in southern India rallied Saturday to demand that authorities arrest those responsible for the attack.

More than 4,000 parents and relatives of children who attend the school in Bangalore, India’s technology hub, shouted slogans against the school’s administration and demanded that police arrest those involved in the July 2 incident, which was reported only this past week.

They carried placards that read „Enough is enough“ and „We want justice,“ and walked more than 4 kilometres to one of Bangalore’s main police stations.

Police said the girl was assaulted when she left her classroom to go to the restroom. They said she was recovering from the incident, but did not give further details.
