Mother stages protest against school official, alleges sexual abuse

TIRUPATI: The mother of an Eighth standard student staged a protest in front of a private school in Nellore on Friday morning, alleging that the girl was sexually assaulted by the school correspondent with the help of his driver. The incident took place in Magunta layout limits.

The mother obstructed the vehicle of the school correspondent by staging a sit-in protest in front of the vehicle for more than two hours.

She told the media that her daughter was caught copying in an exam conducted by the school a few days ago. Taking advantage of this situation, the correspondent sexually assaulted her for the past few days and was now luring her by promising good marks, she alleged.

“My daughter tried to commit suicide by consuming sleeping pills. She is unable to bear the harassment. I thwarted her attempt and rescued her from taking the extreme step. Despite complaining to the school management, they didn’t take action against the correspondent,” the mother said.

The school management denied the allegations and claimed that the girl was only warned by the teachers after she was caught indulging in exam malpractices. “The girl’s parents are diverting the issue by putting the blame on the school management,” it said.

As per the sources, no police complaint was lodged by the woman till the evening.
