A Patna court has convicted two lady teachers of a famous English-medium school for 'unnatural sexual act' with a five-year-old girl student.

The order was passed on Thursday by Special Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) judge Ravindra Nath Tripathi, who fixed July 20 as the date for deciding the quantum of sentence for Nutan Joseph and Indu Anand.

Chandra Prasad, Special Public Prosecutor said the two women have been declared guilty under different sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) as well as the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.

Following a complaint by the girl's parents at Mahila Thana in Patna, Joseph and Anand were arrested in November, 2016. 

The parents in the FIR had stated that the two teachers asked their 5-year-old girl to undress in a classroom and then sexually assaulted her.

The medical reports also confirmed the assault.
