Jaipur: Sexual harassment survivor says school warden threatened her

Jaipur: A 35-year-old hostel warden in a Jaipur school for visually impaired children has been accused of seeking sexual favours from a 15-year-old student. He has also been accused of harassing the girl who is the daughter of the school's sanitation worker and threatening her with expulsion.

While school authorities have denied the allegations, the police have arrested the accused warden and have detained a teacher. The teen survivor said, "He started touching me inappropriately. I complained against him and then my mother was removed from the school. He behaved inappropriately with other girls in the school. He would threaten them with expulsion, scold them and severely beat them."

Jaipur DCP Anil Tank said, "The girl's mother was working in the school, so the victim would visit school. The accused got to know her and then started to harass her. We have lodged a case against the accused."
