Report abuse at Bhandup school, cops urge parents

Written By Unknown on Minggu, 21 Desember 2014 | 22.23

MUMBAI: The police have put up posters outside the Bhandup school, where a junior KG (4) student had been sexually assaulted by one of its staffer, Kesari Upadhaya, on December 9, asking parents to come forward and register a complaint if any of their wards too had undergone similar trauma.

The sexual assault on the junior KG student came to light a week after the incident. Upadhaya, known as Chhota Sir among students, has been booked under the Protection of Children against Sexual Offences Act, 2012 (POCSO). He has been remanded in police custody.

The posters were put up after reports in media stated that more children had been molested by Upadhaya at the school. "We are looking at all angles. We have requested parents to register complaints if their children had been sexually molested. It been two days, but no one has come forward," said Bhandup police senior inspector P Chavan. The Maharashtra State Commission for Protection of Child Rights has also taken up suo motu cognizance of the case.

The police are also if there is any illegality in the school. The BMC, which regulates primary schools in the city, said that the institute's secondary section had required permission for the primary section. "We regulate primary sections; the incident took place at the pre-primary section. So, we cannot initiate any action," said a BMC official.

Education inspector (north zone) Anil Sable said, "A field officer will visit the school on Monday and check if there has been any illegality. Though, the pre-primary section is not under us, we will investigate to avoid any more incidents."

Pre-schools do not need permissions or approvals from any authority. Experts said the government needs to look into the growing number of unregulated pre-schools. "Neither the education department nor the civic bodies takes the responsibility to ensure security measures or academic requirements at pre-schools. Safety of children is at risk," said Swati Popat Vats, president, Early Childhood Association. assaulted,police,junior KG (4) student,Bhandup school
