Gurgaon: The security of school children seems to be at risk in the schools of Gurgaon after an 8-year-old girl was sexually molested by her male teacher in a government school in Manesar. The accused, identified as Ramchander, was reportedly drunk during the incident.
Shockingly, the incident comes amid the ongoing outrage over the gruesome murder of 7-year-old Pradhyuman Thakur in the washroom of Ryan International School.
The incident took place on Wednesday evening when a group of students came to school for tuition after the morning classes. During the class, one of the girl students was hurt and the teacher took her to the adjoining room where he tried to molest her on the pretext of providing her with first aid.
The victim, sensing what the accused was trying to do, escaped from the room and went home. She narrated the incident to her family members. After the complaint was lodged in Sector 7 Mane-sar police station, the male educator was soon arrested. Various allegations came forward, stating that there are many children who were sexually exploited by him.
“We have arrested the accused after we received a complaint that he molested a student. I want to compliment the young girl who had the courage and sense to realise that something wrong was happening and thus escaping from his clutches,” said a police official.
