Sexual violence in school?
Where is the world coming to? Seven-year-old student? Kendriya Vidyalaya? Was this guy retarded enough to believe that he could get away with this? How did they hire such a sick character at the school?
[Source: CNN-IBN]A seven-year-old student in Chennai has alleged that she was raped by a school employee at the Kendriya Vidyalaya in Ashok Nagar. The student’s parents say the girl was asked by a teacher to go to a classroom where a man was waiting with chocolates. The man turned out be the lab assistant who took her to a room and allegedly raped her. The incident has shocked parents of students studying at the school. “We just want more transparency,” says Lata.
Meanwhile, parents of the victim have filed a complaint based on which the police have begun investigations. But the school authorities maintain they are not at fault. “We assure you none of our teachers are in the wrong. We are conducting an inquiry and anyone found guilty will be severely dealt with,” says Assistant Commissioner, Kendra Vidyalaya Sanghatan, Chennai region, E Prabhakar.
Often I have read news from across the world about rapists and psychopaths molesting/sexually assaulting helpless children and often wondered how could they do this? I mean, whats exactly going through their mind when they try to pull off something as stupid and sick as this?
I wouldn’t be surprised if this lab assistant is found guilty and then gets away with a minimum punishment like suspension. I strongly believe that the government should have a database of criminals and these characters (if found guilty) should be enlisted in that database as child molesters. And other organizations that have anything to do with children should check this database before hiring anyone. Of course, that still doesn’t mean that the hired person is 100% OK. It probably just means that he hasn’t been caught so far. But, its one step ahead in protecting our children against these monsters. Then again, this is not an isolated incident. These have been happening for years and it will continue to happen in future too. Still, we have to look at what we can do to minimize it.
The parents send their kids to school believing that they are safe inside the campus. They trust the teachers and other school employees with lives of their beloved ones. How could an educated teacher play part in this? Well, Maybe I am jumping the gun here. Maybe we should just wait till the police investigates and hopefully find the truth.
