charges of negligence.
The second grade student was sexually abused in the school toilet next to the office of the headmistress during recess yesterday, by an unidentified person, police said today. The incident came to light after the minor complained of pain and was referred for medical examination. Several parents and locals protested outside the school
last night questioning the negligence on the part of the school management. As the situation turned tense, Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar visited the spot late last night
assuring stern action against the accused. We will not spare the accused and anyone involved in this crime," Parrikar said, following which police detained the headmistress. Police said the culprit is yet to be arrested. A sketch has been prepared based on the description provided by the victim, they said.
Incidentally, the school has been one of the well guarded institute with Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel posted at the gate.
Rape is no doubt a heinous crime, but isn%u2019t time that we do some introspection of the values of we build in our society? Unicef reported that 50 million women are missing in India because of female foeticide and infanticide. Isn%u2019t it a genocide against humanity? Childhood neglect of girls is another problem and many women die early in adulthood. Dowry is certainly a curse on us. This has resulted into higher ratio of boys than girls (35% in Punjab, 28% in Haryana, 12% in Rajasthan, more than 10% in Gujarat, HP, Maharashtra & Orissa). This clearly demonstrates that between 1 in 10 and in places even 1 in 3 Indians have murdered a girl either before or after birth. Even the rich and modern cities like Delhi, Chandigarh, and Ahmadabad show some of the worst child sex ratios. What happens when the men do not find a women for a match? Kidnapping, murder, rape and so on. What we Indians are doing now is just treating the symptoms, not the disease.
