The accused head master, Nakul Sabar, of Ampani Sevashram was also placed under suspension after obtaining permission from higher authorities, District Welfare Officer (DWO) SK Mohammed said.
The head master called the girl to his room located in the ST girl's hostel on November 22 and allegedly raped her forcibly, police said
The girl told her classmates about the incident but nothing could be done as the students were not allowed to go out and the main gate of the Sevashram was locked.
The villagers also blocked the NH-201 in protest, they said, adding the head master was arrested later and the girl sent for medical examination.
The villagers attacked the authorities for allowing the accused to stay inside the girl's hostel premises. Such
incidences have raised question marks about safety of girl students in the Sevashram and Kanyashrams in the district, they said.
