A Delhi resident, who alleged that her four-year-old daughter had been sexually assaulted by her classmate in a Delhi school in November 2017, has opened up about the ordeal.

Speaking on Richa Anirudh’s show, ‘Zindagi with Richa’, the mother of the child said the incident has brought their lives to a standstill.

The woman has accused the school authorities and the investigating officers of being insensitive to the case.

My daughter is afraid to go to school, she says.

Whenever we cross that stretch (near the school), she (my daughter) tells me, “Mumma, that school is a monster, because that boy is here”.

The woman said that it was traumatic and confusing that the four-year-old boy, who has been accused of the assault, had gone out of his way to hurt the girl in her genital area.

Uski itni himmat thi that he unzipped her pants and did whatever he wanted to do with her. (He had the guts to unzip her pants and do what he wanted).

“I never understood why people would say they were worried when a daughter was born. But now I do. It’s because girls are the most vulnerable,” she said, breaking down into tears.

Vowing to not forget or forgive the incident, she said: “Hum heal nahi karna chahte hai”.
