A Class-8 boy in Rewari quit school on Monday after he was allegedly sexualy abused by his senior. The boy, studying in Sainik School in Sector 4, complained to his parents about his harassment, who made him quit the school.
Sources said he was harassed by a Class-12 student of the same school at their hostel premises. The family of the boy, however, did not lodge a police complaint fearing embarrassment, they added.
The school administration said the Class-12 boy who was accused of sodomising the victim was suspended after the complaint of the victim’s family.
Principal Captain Rajeev Sharma said, “Had the boy complained to us earlier, we would have never let it happen.”
The principal said he tried persuading the boy’s family to let him study in the school. However, they insisted on getting him out of the school.
Rewari deputy commissioner Yash Garg, who is also the chairman of the school, said he was not aware of the incident. “I have not received any complaint in the matter. It is serious if it has happened and we will conduct an inquiry,” he said.
