In wake of the recent murder of a seven-year-old student inside the premises of a private school in Gurugram followed a day later by the rape of a five-year-old girl in Delhi’s Tagore Public school, the Delhi government on Monday issued a mandatory direction to all Delhi schools to submit a record of their staff members within a week to get them verified by the local police stations.
Deputy Chief minister Manish Sisodia called an emergency meeting on Monday with all governmental departments, police officials, and schools (private, government, and MCD) , and listed out a set of instructions to be followed by all schools.
Meanwhile, three days after the brutal murder of 7-year-old boy in a Gurgaon school, the Supreme Court sought the response of the Centre and the Haryana police on his father's plea seeking a CBI probe into it and framing of guidelines to ensure safety of children.
Besides the Human Resources Development Ministry and the Haryana Director General of Police, a bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra also sought a response from the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and CBI on the plea filed by Barun Chandra Thakur, father of the child.
Sisodia also called for a regressive round of police verification of all staff members working in whatever capacity within three weeks. A record of all employees will have to be submitted to the local police station, which will then generate a verification report within 15 days
