An incident has surfaced in parts of a national Capital in which a student locked a 44-year-old government school teacher in the washroom and then added conditions to open seeking “sexual favours” from her.
It has been reported that most probably the male student of a government school opened the door only when the teacher agree to his “conditions.” Following which a complaint was found and an FIR was field by the authorities. And hunt has begun to identify the student.
Police said the woman has not been able to identify the student during investigation.
“She has seen all the male students in the school but has not been able to identify the student who locked her up in the washroom and made sexually coloured remarks. I was in the washroom, I heard a noise and found out the door had been locked from outside. When I called out for help, he shouted he will only open the door in return of sexual favours,” said the teacher, adding that as she was in a state of “shock” she could just catch a glimpse of the student.
“I could only scream for help as I was not carrying my phone. But there were not many people around as it was break time between the two shifts. I had to agree to sleeping with him for making him unlock the door. As soon as the door was opened, I started shouting and he fled from there.
“I just caught a glimpse of him from the ventilator and could not see his face properly. I was in a state of shock and could not focus on when I came out. I cannot forget those 15 minutes,” she added.
The incident alerted the officials and as reported by PTI officials at the Directorate of Education said a meeting was held by the School Management Committee to look into the issue.
“A meeting of the SMCs of the two shifts was convened that very day to discuss the issue. The teacher is in stress but students can also not be tackled harshly. We will organise some youth and adolescent training and counselling programmes in schools to help students and teachers deal with such issues,” a senior DoE official said.
