In a shocking incident, two schoolgirls were allegedly molested inside their classroom in a Municipal Corporation-run school in New Delhi. According to the details, the eight-year-old girls were molested by an unknown person, who had barged into the classroom.
The incident was confirmed by Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal, who on Wednesday said the unknown person went inside the classroom and removed the clothes of the girls.
"In an MCD run school in Bhajanpura area, two girl students sitting inside their class were molested by an unknown person. He went to their class and removed the clothes of the girls. He then removed his clothes and urinated in front of the class," said Swati Maliwal.
A notice has been issued to the police with the Delhi Commission for Women to take strict action and arrest the accused while the East MCD commissioner has been summoned before the commission.
"We have summoned the Commissioner of East MCD to appear before us and answer the question that how can an unknown person enter the school. What happened to the CCTVs that have been installed?," said Maliwal.
