In a horrific act, a Class X student reportedly tried to attempt suicide after she was repeatedly harassed by her Mathematics teacher.
The girl studies in a government school in Hyderabad.
It was reported that the victim allegedly tried to jump off the second floor of the school building after alleging her Mathematics teacher against sexual harassment charges.
The victim told the media, “My Maths teacher used to demoralise me every day as I once failed in this subject. She would continuously shout at me and would tell everyone that I’d never reach my goal in my life. She would never miss a day in scolding me in front of others. On being fed up and irritated, I took this decision”.
The incident took place in Hyderabad’s Palamakula Kasturba Residential Government School.
Meanwhile, Child Rights Activist Achyuta Rao said in a statement, “Upon receiving the information, we rushed to the school and counselled the girl. We got to know that other than her mathematics teachers, other teachers also harassed her. Sometimes, she was also made to clean the toilets as punishment. We have filed a complaint at the Shamshabad Police Station and have demanded a criminal case on the teachers involved in the matter”.
However, the officials said that the investigation into the matter is still in process.
