Child rape case: Bangalore school reopens after 10 days
BANGALORE: The school where a six-year-old girl was allegedly raped reopened on Monday, 10 days after it was shut over the outrageous incident that led to severe public protests and prompted police to issue tough guidelines for children’s safety.
Vibgyor High School reopened after groups of parents visited the institution to take stock of the safety measures initiated by the management, which faced allegations of trying to hush up the July 2 incident before it came to light only after a police complaint was lodged 12 days later.
Parents seemed cautiously satisfied about safety mechanisms but there were many others who sounded sceptical, voicing anxiety over sending their wards back to the school.Ahead of reopening, parents carried out the inspection on Sunday in the presence of local officials of education and police departments, as also senior executive of the school, which has reportedly installed about 100 CCTV cameras. Classes from Standard 5 to 10 reopened on Monday and classes from 1 to 4 will start on Wednesday.
