Noida MLA Pankaj Singh visited the parents of then girl who hung herself after she was sexually harassed by her teachers in school and assured that he will try his best to bring the guilty to book.
Noida MLA Pankaj Singh on Sunday called on the parents of Ekisha Shah and assured all help in bringing all those guilty to book. The parents of the girl said that only a CBI investigation would be able to ferret out the truth as to what exactly transpired and drove their little one to commit suicide.
Singh said that the shocking incident must serve as a lesson to all parents to take complaints from their children seriously and react immediately. The schools too must respond quickly to such complaints, he said. "Teachers and parents should not be pressurizing the children. They should support the children about their passion," he said.
He further added that he will speak to the new SSP into the matter so that truth could be revealed.
Parents of the sixteen year old girl of Ahlcon Public school have alleged that she was sexually harassed by her teachers apart from being deliberately failed in her annual exams. Ekisha had committed suicide on Wednesday evening and was found hanging at her residence in Noida Sector 52.
Noida Police has filed an FIR against two teachers and the school principal under the IPC Sections 306 (abetment to suicide), 354 (sexual harassment and punishment for sexual harassment), 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation) and the POCSO Act. Investigations are on, police said.
On Thursday, the Shah family members and friends had blocked the Noida-Delhi link road (from both sides) for around 5 hours to seek justice for their daughter and arrest of the accused teachers.
