Parents demand report, complete sequence of events on sexual assault
Parents submitted a fresh list of demands to the new secretary of the school management and have also demanded a detailed sequence of events regarding the sexual assault at the Vasco School.
The demands were made at a meeting on Wednesday, when the new secretary of the school management introduced himself to the parents and assured to accept all their suggestions and place them before the school management.
He informed the parents of the various steps taken by the management to tighten security, following the shocking sexual assault of the schoolgirl in the Vasco toilet.
When some parents demanded the suspension of the security guard who was present on the day of the sexual assault, the official said the management could not directly suspend the guard as they would have to consult the guard’s superiors.
Regarding the one-person committee appointed by the management to investigate into the lapses, the parents suggested that the management should add two more persons on the committee as there is every possibility that the one-person committee could be biased.
The parents asked the official to provide in writing the detailed sequence of events from the time of the incident to the filing of complaint. They also wanted to know who had directed the school staff to wash the child
Meanwhile, the parents have decided to form a 10-member committee to interact with the officials in this connection, rather than having all parents attend the meetings which would only add confusion and tension during the interactions. [H]
