We are at a loss of words after the last few incidents of kids getting sexually assaulted even in the school premises. A child spends a considerable amount of his/her time for around 12 years in the school and when even these educational institutions couldn’t provide safety to them what else could we expect.

We live in a society where out of fear of victim shaming most of the sexual abuse victims prefer to not open up about their assaults. Parents need to teach their kids about good and bad touch and encourage them to inform elders or parents about any doubtful activity by any relative or stranger.

The father of the victim said,“ We are in shock and have nothing to say. We send our kids to get educated and not to be victims of such perverts loitering in schools“.

Here’s hoping the rapist is served with the maximum possible punishment under the law.
