Class 4 student molested by school seniors, teacher allegedly took no action
New Delhi, Aug 8: Three senior students allegedly molested a nine-year-old student of the same school in Delhi. The senior students are said to have molested the younger boy thrice in the school bus earlier this month.
What is apalling is that a teacher who was travelling in the same bus is said to have ignored the complaint of the nine-year-old. The boy's family alleged that the teacher did not ask the child for details of the incident.
It is really shocking that such incidents are taking place in schools. Last year in December, a complaint was filed against a four-year-old boy for allegedly raping his classmate in a Delhi school.
The issue is truly worrisome and calls for serious attention by parents and school administrators.
The boys are students of Class 7, 8 and 10. The victim is a student of Class 4. The case was registered on August 6, reported HT.
The victim's sister said that the three senior boys who molested her brother were seated in the rear seats of the school bus.
"There were 16 students besides the teacher and bus staff on the bus. The three boys were seated in the rear. They called my brother and molested him. The other two boys did the same on July 30 and August 1," an HT report quoted her as saying.
