By 4th June 2017 0 Comments


In an incident that brought shame to the school that produced the CBSE Class-12 district topper Deeba Goyal, six students of Kundan Vidya Mandir’s primary section have alleged that they were molested and touched inappropriately by Class IV employees during a summer camp this week.

It was a harrowing moment for their parents who staged a protest outside principal Navita Puri’s office on Saturday.

They were also joined by other parents. However, they alleged that the school authorities were forcing them to not pursue the matter with police.

The parents of two girl students have lodged a formal complaint.

Parents also blocked the road in front of the school and demanded an FIR against all the culprits who were identified by the students. So far, only one employee has been identified. The school management stated that it has suspended a gardener, Naresh Kumar, after he was identified by a student.

Later, police intervened and registered a case under Section 354B (assault or use of criminal force to woman with intent to disrobe) of the Indian Penal Code and Section 8 (sexual assault) of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act.
