Hyderabad: Another case of sexual assault at Azaan International School surfaced on Friday with a Class I student falling prey on the same day when a four-year-old girl was molested by the maintenance supervisor.
The child’s parent lodged a complaint with the Golconda police, following which a case was registered. “A parent approached us alleging his daughter, who is studying in Class I, was sexually assaulted on September 14 on the premises of the school. We registered a case and started to investigate,” Mohd Munnawar, Station House Officer of Golconda, said.
The parent alleged that the child was sexually assaulted on the school premises. “They said they wanted to file a complaint the same day, but backed off after noticing the trouble and media glare at the school when the other case was reported. Nevertheless, we launched a probe,” the SHO said.
The school recently made headlines after a parent approached the police early this month alleging sexual harassment of a four-year-old child on the school premises. The police arrested one Jeelani, who works at the school. The incident led to trouble in the area with the police registering four cases against protestors who vandalised the property at the school and outside.
AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi along with Karwan legislator Kauser Mohiuddin met Hyderabad Police Commissioner Anjani Kumar and asked him to initiate a probe in to the incident.
