According to the Moroccan media, two schoolgirls blew up the case, after they were seeking refuge in the health center located next to the educational institution in which they study.
According to the girls, the 63-year-old guard tried to rape the first pupil, but after she escaped, he forcibly raped the second girl causing her to lose consciousness.
The girl was taken to Jurf Al-Maha Hospital, and after examination, it was found that she had been raped.
