Leader of the Opposition, V Vaithilingam, on Tuesday raised doubts over the manner in which investigation into the school girl rape was conducted and questioned the government for not arresting the third accused in the case.
Addressing a press conference at the Congress party office, Vaithilingam said the government should make public the details regarding the third accused and clarify the grounds on which the person was not arrested. With the government not making any clarifications there was confusion among all regarding the incident, he said.
Further, Vaithilingam opposed the changes made in the uniform for girls. He said that introduction of overcoat would not solve the issue, as it might end up isolating girls and creating sexual segregation. He said that any reforms mooted by the government should be implemented after due discussions with the students, parents and teachers.
Vaithilingam said that teachers should monitor the activities of students and correct them whenever necessary and added that only qualified people should be appointed as driver and conductor on private buses.
