The Hush Post: Sexual assault on school kids and girls and violence among children have reached alarming proportions. There’s not a day which goes without any reported incident, there might be many more which go unreported. A four-year-old boy in a Ludhiana school has alleged sexual assault by the gatekeeper of Shivalikwala Doon School, in which he studies.
The gatekeeper was rounded up on Thursday. He is yet to be booked. The police said it could be a case of sodomy. The medical examination of the boy will make it clear whether or not he was sexually assaulted, the police said.
The Nursery class student, informed his parents about pain in his private parts. The boy’s father said he ignored it for the past few weeks. ‘Today, when he came back from school, he again complained of severe pain in his private parts. He told me that whenever he went to school bathroom, the gatekeeper (Class IV employee) followed him inside and assaulted him,” he said.“My son also told me the gatekeeper forced him to watch adult movies,” the boy’s father alleged.“The gatekeeper and other male staff are not allowed to enter the wing,” Maria told a regional daily.
Denying the possibility of sexual assault in the playway wing, Gopal Maria, the school owner, claimed that without informing the school management about the matter, families of students accompanied by unidentified persons misbehaved with the vice-principal.
