Student threatens to rape teacher, daughter on Facebook: CWC issues notice

February 21, 2018

The district child welfare committee, on Wednesday, said it will issue a notice to a top Gurgaon school after a 13-year-old student threatened to rape one of his teachers and her minor daughter in a post on Facebook while another teenaged student emailed a teacher offering a date and sex.
Both the alleged incidents happened last week, sources said.

The sheer vulgarity of the Facebook post shocked the family of the teacher and her traumatised minor daughter, who has not attended classes since, they said. The girl is learnt to be the accused student’s classmate, they added. Her equally agonised mother, however, managed to rejoin, the sources said.

Taking note of the seriousness of the incidents, the district Child Welfare Committee has decided to issue a notice to the school and is mulling counselling sessions for the children and school authorities.

According to sources, the school authorities are also examining the incidents following complaints by the teachers. The school has a zero-tolerance policy towards such acts and a suitable course of action is being considered, according to a source.

Gurgaon District Child Welfare Committee chairperson Shakuntala Dhull said suo motu cognizance of the incidents had been taken. “A notice will be sent to the school and the children. They will be called for questioning. Counselling sessions will be held for the school authorities, including the teachers and kids,” she said.

Gurgaon Police PRO Ravinder Kumar said: “We are aware about reports of such incidents but have not yet received any complaint from the victims seeking a probe.”
