Angry parents beat up a bus conductor and driver after allegations surfaced that the conductor showed obscene videos to school girls during transit, reported Times of India. According to the report, the students are from St Angel Public School in Baghpat, Uttar Pradesh.
The incident happened on Tuesday after which some of the girls complained to their parents. The bus was stopped midway on Wednesday morning and the bus conductor was thrashed and the vehicle was vandalised, according to TOI.
After the murder of a 7-year-old at Ryan International School in Gurugram, despite measures to ensure safety in schools, parents have been worried. Schools have come under scanner for failing to ensure proper checks of employees and maintain security in the campuses. Radhey Shyam, one of the parents, told TOI:
We do not understand how, even after the Ryan International School incident in Gurgaon, this school has not learnt anything about safety of children. How could this conductor even dare to show such clippings to our daughters? We are worried now and will take up the matter with the school authorities.
The two men were taken into custody from the spot on Wednesday morning. However, the police had to face the wrath of the crowd.
We have arrested the conductor as he was the main culprit. He has been booked under Section 354 C (voyeurism) of the IPC, Section 66 of the IT Act and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, and sent to jail. We have also given strict instructions to the school to take multiple precautions including pasting of three helpline numbers on the back of the bus, getting two CCTV cameras installed in the vehicle and barring drivers and conductors from owning multimedia phones.Arvind Kumar, station in-charge, Singhawali Aheer police station, told TOI.
Times of India said the authorities remained unavailable for a comment on the incident.
