Following murder of a school boy on Ryan’s campus and rape of a small girl in a school a few days ago, the issue of child safety on campuses is at the forefront with CBSE, government and police issuing security advisories to schools.
Parents in Okhla too are worried after coming to know about the murder of a small boy on the campus of a reputed school. Though the bus conductor has been arrested, the issue of security of schoolchildren is being talked about. Private and Government schools have been asked to put up CCTV cameras, get staff verification done and monitor entry of outsiders on the school campus and more. The list of things to do by schools in post murder is long. Moreover, schools have been informed that in case they fail to follow the rules chances are they would be derocgonised.
Okhla-based Maryam too has released a video in which she is seen discussing ways how to be safe on the campus. “After the issue was highlighted, Maryam too started discussing with us. We too discussed the issue of children safety with Maryam to sanitise her. It was during a conversion that she said that she would be following these guidelines while in school. We thought it better to record it and share with residents of the country, including Okhla,” said Maryam’s father, who is a resident of AFE.
