Parents of Noida schoolgirl to approach SC to demand CBI probe
Noida: Seeking justice for their daughter, parents of the 15-year-old girl – who committed suicide at their residence after facing harassment from her school teachers – joined hands with the parents of the deceased Class II student of a Gurugram private school and held a joint press conference on Monday.
Addressing media at their Noida residence, Raghav Shah, the girl's father said that he will now knock the doors of Supreme Court for justice.
"On Tuesday morning, we will go to Supreme Court to file a plea for CBI investigation against the school," Shah said.
He added that Sushil Thekriwal, who represented the parents of the deceased Gurugram schoolboy, will represent their case in the court.
"Around 20,000 people will join us in our fight against seeking justice," Shah added.
Recalling the painful incident, Shah said, "My daughter went through brutal treatment in her classroom. When she was on her monthly cycle, she went to washroom to change and took 15-20 minutes to return to class. As she returned, the teacher on duty in class, who was also a female, abused her, hit her and made her stand on the bench," said the father.
He also alleged that police took money from the school principal and botched up the investigation. Meanwhile, police are yet to make arrests in the case, citing lack of evidence.
"Investigations are underway and we are covering every possible aspect in the case very closely. The arrests cannot be made until and unless we get relevant proof on the allegations made by victim's parents" said Arun Kumar Singh, Superintendent of Police, Noida.
