East Delhi’s city council has decided to suspend the principal and a teacher and end the services of contract staff at a school in Bhajanpura, where two girls were allegedly abused by a man a few days ago, Mayor Shyam Sunder Aggarwal said Friday.
He said the decision was taken by East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) authorities and an official order is expected to be issued later on Friday.
On April 30, a man allegedly entered a public school classroom in East Delhi and sexually assaulted two eight-year-old girls before undressing and urinating in front of the students.
Based on a sketch, a man has been arrested on suspicion of being the suspect in the case.
Mr Aggarwal said: “According to the decision taken, the principal of the school and a teacher have been suspended and the services of a contractual teacher, to whom the matter was first reported, have been terminated.” In addition, a “cause notice” has been issued to a teacher and a school superintendent, and a “severe warning” to the zonal deputy director of the EDMC’s education department, he said.
The Delhi Commission for Women has claimed that when the students informed the school principal and class teacher about the incident, they should keep quiet and forget about it.
Police said no CCTV camera had been installed at the school entrance and grounds.
