http://in.news.yahoo.com/060817/139/66r0l.html In a shocking revelation, a girl student of Dehradun's Shigally Hill International Academy school today alleged that sexual harassment was going on in the school and that too with the due sanction of the authorities. One of the students of the school, Dalef Singh, said at a press conference that some of the senior girls of the school abuse the targeted girls and often go to the extent of sexually abusing them. "The senior girls used to abuse us by using foul languages. They even used to sexually abuse us at times. We complained about the matter to the school authorities but nothing was done in this regard," said Dalef Singh. The girl, herself a victim of sexual abuse, was accompanied by her mother at the press conference. "When my daughter told me about this I talked to the Principal but she seems to be reluctant about the whole issue. It started affecting my daughter's mental health. So, I decided to bring this issue in the light", said Sonia Singh, the mother of Dalef. However, the school management refuted the matter strongly, saying that no such thing was brought to the notice of the school authorities. "No one ever contacted me or any concerned person from the staff. I strongly refute these charges", said Tanu Nayal, principal of the school. Meanwhile, the police have registered a case against the school on the basis of the complaint lodged by the girl and her mother. Further investigations are going on in the matter. "We have registered the case against the school and investigations are still going on. We cannot comment anything at this hour. We have to investigate the whole issue and see to the pros and cons of the case", said Rajkumar Verma, SHO, Rajpur Police station. Shigally Hill International Academy is a reputed school in Doon and with the surfacing of such allegations on the school authorities, the future may prove to be fatal for the reputation of the institution in the long run.
