A 22-year-old man employed in the housekeeping staff has been arrested for allegedly molesting a Class IV student of The Millennium School in Panipat. The nine-year-old girl had gone to washroom on Wednesday morning when the accused tried to molest her. He was arrested late on Thursday night after 38 hours of the incident. Tarun is from Rakesh Nagar. Earlier, police had shown the photographs of five sweepers and seven other staff members to nine year old victim girl on Thursday evening.
During the investigation she was quite scared. After this, when her mother showed the photograph she identified the accused. CCTV footage was observed in the presence of the girl’s parents. Child Protection Commission and the child’s parents have demanded to register a case against school owner. Local administration should takeover school till completion of the inquiry.
The girl told the CPO Nidhi Gupta that she went to the toilet on Wednesday at around 7:45 in the morning after 5 minutes of going to school, then someone from the English lab was watching. As soon as she went to the toilet, a person came wearing a green T-shirt and started molesting her. When the girl started shouting, he shut her mouth. Also, he threatened her that he could do anything with her so she should stay calm and he would leave.
She came out from there somehow after that she started to cry in fear. She told the whole story to the in-charge of the class but they did not trust her. It is to be mentioned that recently, a seven-year-old child was murdered in Gurgaon’s Ryan International School whose dead body was found in the bathroom. Police in this case arrested the school bus conductor Ashok Kumar.
