Sweeper held for molesting two girls at Gurugram's Vidya School
Weeks after a student of Class 2 was found dead in Gurugram's Ryan International School, another incident of alleged molestation in the city's Vidya School has come to light. A 33-year-old sweeper of the school was arrested on Wednesday for molesting two girl students of Class 3. The incident reportedly took place when the girls went to the washroom on Monday.
CCTV footage confirms molestation charges
The girls informed the school authorities about the incident during a counselling session on 'good touch' and 'bad touch'. The administration thereafter checked the CCTV footage and found that the sweeper had tried to hug and molest the girls. The school principal lodged a complaint with the police, post which the accused, Suresh Kumar, was arrested and produced in a court on Wednesday.
Schools asked to submit safety certificates within 15 days
All schools in Gurugram have been asked by the district administration to submit safety certificates within 15 days. The move aims to protect school students under Section 144 of the CrPC. Schools have also been asked to form safety committees with two parent representatives. This comes after Pradyuman's murder brought to light the appalling apathy of schools in ensuring the safety of its students.
