Two teachers held for sexually assaulting 4-year-old in Kolkata school

Kolkata: Police on Friday morning detained a physical education teacher in Kolkata after a four-year-old student alleged that he sexually abused her in the school toilet. During interrogation, both the teachers admitted to committing the crime.

The incident took place at GD Birla Centre for Education on Thursday.

West Bengal Commission for the Protection of Child Rights, Chairperson, Ananya Chakraborty said, "I have asked the school authorities why CCTVs were not installed there in the last three years, but they have no answer".

One teacher laughed and said that there is nothing to do if someone is being "mischievous", according to media reports. Principal of the school Sharmila Nath said, "We will take strict action after our internal inquiry".

The Principal also added that the victim's parents have not formally complained to the school.

According to Priyanka Tibrewala, the victim's lawyer, on Thursday afternoon the two teachers lured the girl inside the toilet by providing her a chocolate bar.

The child was constantly crying and complained of severe pain after returning from school on Wednesday when her mother spotted blood stains on her clothes, he said.

The accused were arrested after the parents of the girl child lodged a complaint at the local Jadavpur Police station, a senior officer of Kolkata Police said.

Her parents then took her to a paediatrician who advised her to be taken to the police, Garg said. "When the doctor examined her, he said it's a case of assault and told me to lodge a police case". When the victim cried they left her in the washroom and went out from the school.

On Thursday, the kindergarten student was allegedly molested inside the toilet during the school hours.

The West Bengal government has assured action in the case.

Partha Chatterjee, state education minister, said: "I have already sent members of my staff to inquire into the incident". "All the while, we were there with the girl's family and speeded up the complaint registration process and ensured minimum hassle for the family", an officer said.

Chatterjee said that he had heard that such an incident had also taken place in that school three years ago and the school authorities should ensure security of the students. Police sources said that the child has internal injuries too.

Reshma Basu, a teacher of a private school at Kolkata said, "The work of the teachers does not end only with studies". I immediately went to school to take her and when I saw her, she looked ready to collapse.

Manuel Fernandez, who taught at Latin American Montessori Bilingual Charter School (L.A.M.B.), previously pleaded guilty Friday to two charges of second-degree child sexual abuse, one charge of attempted second-degree child sexual abuse and three charges of misdemeanor sexual abuse of a child.
