Bangalore: Another man who allegedly raped a seven-year-old child inside a city school two years ago is a free man, roaming on the streets.
The girl, then a student of the Delhi Public School in Whitefield, was raped, allegedly by a man who worked as a plumber in the school. While the accused was released on bail within a few months of his arrest, the traumatised girl could not attend school for nearly six months after the incident.
The mother of the child is now trying her best to help her daughter recover. “My daughter saw this recent case and asked me,Â amma, same thing no,” says her mother.
After the incident, the girl had complained to her mother of severe stomach pain, fever and vomiting.Â
Parents of the six-year-old child, who was allegedly raped at the Vibgyor International School on July 2, found out about the horrific incident after she complained of similar symptoms to her mother seven days later.
School authorities at DPS Whitefield claim that they had conducted a background check on the accused before he was hired and reacted responsibly after the incident came to light two years ago.Â
“Without instilling fear in the minds of the children, we have introduced security measures. A child is now never left alone with a male teacher. Every toilet is manned by a maid. We also conduct awareness workshops for teachers and we involve parents,” they said.Â
The alleged rape of the six-year-old child at Vibgyor International School, allegedly by the skating instructor, has prompted many schools across Bangalore to install CCTV cameras.Â
While the police is likely to initiate action against the school management, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah appeared tired of taking questions on the issue. The Chief Minister, when queried on the issue by a journalist, snapped back, “Is this the only news? Is there no other news?”Â
