The parents of a deceased class 9 student who committed suicide at her Noida residence have sought a CBI probe into the incident.
The girl was a student at Delhi’s Ahlcon Public School in Mayur Vihar, Phase-I. A group of people including the family members of the girl are protesting against the school demanding a CBI inquiry into the matter.
“No arrests have been made yet. Do they think my daughter lied about harassment by teachers? Is the Police under pressure or did they take bribes? I want justice and a CBI probe to be done,” the father of the victim said.
The parents of the victim alleged that the girl committed suicide after she was deliberately failed by the school.
According to the parents, the girl had complained to them about the harassment she was facing at the hands of two teachers at the school. A case has been registered in the matter and the two teachers, as well as the principal, have been booked.
Meanwhile, the Principal has defended the school teachers and said that the school mourns her death and that it stood with the family.
He added, “If I see her record she was an average student, not very good at studies but a great dancer. Students’ marks are given at PTMs but her parents didn’t attend any. She didn’t fail, had to give re-test.”
While addressing the harassment allegation, he said, “One of the teachers against whom allegations are being made is a woman, how can she sexually harass someone? Another teacher has been here since 25 years and we never got any such complaint.”>
