The victim informed her parents after they persistently asked her why she was disturbed. When she told the parents about the sexual abuse in the school by Rajani Kumar, her parents and relatives rushed to DAV School.

They caught hold of the driver and reportedly beat him up using sticks. On getting to know about the incident, the Banjara Hills police reached the school and took the driver into custody. The cops have registered a case and are currently verifying the feed from surveillance cameras.

Several parents also turned up at the station demanding action from the cops on the same night. They also protested inside the police station premises. Slogans of “We want justice” were raised.

Kasam Bhaskar, a parent of a student at DAV school speaking to Siasat.com said, “The principal has to have known what was happening. There are allegations of other children suffering also. The management was silenced, she’s not taking responsibility either.”
