Following the incident of sexual abuse at her preschool in Sahibabad, the three-and-half-year-old girl is in a state of shock and trauma. The doctors, after getting her medical examination done, have put her on medication to help her recover.
Her parents had lodged an FIR against the woman peon of the preschool and stated that the accused woman inserted fingers into the girl’s private parts in the washroom of the school and even threatened to lock her up if she revealed the incident to anyone.
The girl is the only child of her parents and she was subjected to sexual abuse by the woman attendant in her preschool not once but twice this week. The second incident, on Thursday, made her parents suspicious that something was amiss and they enquired in detail with their daughter.
“She told us about a similar incident on Monday. Then, we had given her some medication and she was cured. Again, on Thursday, she returned from school and complained of severe pain in her private parts. When we asked, she told us that this was the second time that she was subjected to a sexual assault this week. She also told us about a similar assault by the same woman last summer as well,” the girl’s father said.
Her father is a senior officer with an IT major. He approached the police and accompanied them along with the child to the school where she pointed to the accused woman.
“The parents of the other students also accompanied us and asked their children if they had face a similar abuse. Some of them have reported that their child was similarly abused by the woman. I think the woman is mentally sick. We will again approach the school authorities and request the district officials to order closure of the school as such incidents have become common there,” he said.
Following her medical examination, the girl returned home on Friday and continued to remain in a state of trauma.
“We will not be sending her to the same school anymore. The preschool boasts of professional staff and even charges a high fee. But such incidents will deter any parent from admitting their child to such a school,” he said.
The accused woman was arrested by the police on Friday and produced before a Ghaziabad court.
The school authorities did not respond to this reporter’s queries, despite an assurance that they will revert.
