DCW sends notice to school over rape of 6-yr-old
NEW DELHI: The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) has issued a notice to the principal of a south Delhi school where a six-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a sweeper, asking how its male staff had access to women's toilet.
The girl was allegedly raped in a washroom of the school in Malviya Nagar on Wednesday.
The Commission asked the school how the male staff had access to women's toilet, measures it took after the incident was reported and if police verification of the staff, including the accused, had been conducted.
The women's panel also asked school authorities to provide it with a copy of the CCTV footage.
"Exercising the powers conferred under Section 10 of the DCW Act, the Commission has instituted an inquiry into the matter," it said in the notice.
