Chaman Thakor [62] and Jayanti Thakor [30] are said to have raped the 15-year-old girl in the school's music room.

The series of attacks was only revealed after her family became suspicious when she returned to the boarding school in Ambaji, Gujarat after the Diwali vacation last month.

She broke down and entrusted her aunt and explained her ordeal to the two teachers.

She said she was first raped in the music room two months ago by 30-year-old Chaman Thakor.

The older man, Jayanthi Thakor, 62, would have attacked her in the same room three days later. There was another example of rape by the older Thakor the day before an Indian festival.

The family bond between the two men is unknown.

The girl was registered at the boarding school in July to study music. She had studied until grade eight in her home village.

The men were immediately fired by the school board after their crimes were revealed.

The shocking case comes a month after a woman in India was raped by her cousins ​​and forced by her ex-husband to drink acid for her young daughter.

The number of rapes registered in India is almost 40,000 a year, according to official figures.

Campaigners say the actual number is higher, with victims wary of filing cases because of social stigma and a lack of trust in investigators.
