India: School’s director, principal arrested for rape assault case

BENGALURU: The principal and director of a city school, where a six-year-old girl was allegedly sexually assaulted, were arrested on Saturday as government warned of tough action against managements flouting safety norms for children.

The two of Cambridge School were arrested under IPC sections 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) and 336 (act endangering life or personal safety of others), additional commissioner of police Alok Kumar told PTI here.

This is the third arrest in the incident in which the girl was allegedly sexually assaulted twice in the school premises on October 28 and 29. Hindi teacher Jayashankar was arrested yesterday after “admitting” to the crime, according to police.

After sexual assaults of minor girls in schools in the city, Bengaluru police had recently come out with safety guidelines to be observed to ensure safety of children in educational institutions.

Meanwhile, amid public outrage over sexual assaults on minor girls, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah warned managements that permission granted to their schools would be revoked and criminal cases filed against them if they violate guidelines for safety of children.
