School principal allegedly, sexually assaulted 14 girls at a Zilla Parishad school in Nalgonda

By Express News Service

HYDERABAD: Almost three weeks after the Telangana State Commission for Women (TSCW) took up the case suo motu and sought the arrest of the headmaster who allegedly, sexually assaulted 14 girls at a Zilla Parishad school in Nalgonda, no action has been taken in spite of its direction. It was issued by the commission on September 1, stating that a criminal case should also be registered against the headmaster under appropriate sections under Criminal Law Amendment Act, 2013. It also said that action should be taken in next two weeks from the time of issuing the notice, which was September 15. 

The students, who were repeatedly assaulted by the headmaster, wrote to the mandal education officer in Haliya mandal and the district collector ordered suspension of the headmaster.  Tripurana Venkataratnam, chairperson of TSCW, said, “This has happened several times. We checked with the Nalgonda SP who joined only four days ago and asked for the direction to be sent to him.

Quite often, cases of abuse against women are taken up with a casual attitude,” she said. This has been so with regard to a number of cases where the department takes action and suspends the wrongdoer, but there is no enforcement of the law, she added.
