Angry parents protest outside NDMC school where girl was raped
New Delhi, Aug 10 (PTI) Parents today staged a protest outside a NDMC-run school, where a six-year-old girl was allegedly raped, and demanded security in its premises and a ban on entry of outsiders.
The victim, a class two student of the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC)-run school, was allegedly raped by an electrician inside the institute's premises, police said, adding that the man has been arrested.
"Even parents of students are not allowed inside the school without proper IDs. If the accused was an outsider, as the school authorities are claiming, how did he enter the school without permission or without furnishing an ID," one of the protestors said.
"We have seen CCTV cameras at various points inside the school but are they functional? We have seen many cases earlier where CCTV cameras were installed but were either of low resolution or were not functional," said another parent.
"I will not be sending my daughter by school bus. Who will ensure her safety inside the bus? We want a woman conductor to be inside the bus for our daughters' safety," said another parent.
They also questioned the school's attitude in dealing with such a serious incident.
"The principal has been on leave for a week. The head-mistress and the teachers of the school should show more responsibility during this time," a protester said.
A woman, who had passed out from the school said, "This is the first time that such an incident has happened in my school. It is shocking and now I am concerned about the safety of my daughter." PTI AMP
