I am shocked everyday, when i read that little kids as less as 11 months,1 year and 4 year old are sexually assaulted by some twisted minded monsters. But, it is more shocking when i see "Teachers",  who are supposed to nurture and safe guard those children to make them a better humans, are the ones to spoil their life and traumatize them for a lifetime. Recently a small child of 4 years of age was sexually assaulted and abused in her own school " G.D Birla Centre for Education", which is a renowned private school by two of her physical education teachers.This has left me in a shocking state as i belonged to that school and have spent 14 years of my childhood there.So, being an alumni, i feel it my responsibility to stand by that child and many like her to protest against this heinous crime.This is the second case which took place in this same school,the first case took place in 2014.The school authorities and management took no step to safe guard these children even after that, and that negligence resulted in this horrendous crime again.I would like our honorable Chief Justice to create a petition to amend a law to be implemented in all educational institute to PROPERLY COUNSEL EACH AND EVERY TEACHER AND OTHER NON-TEACHING STAFF, INCLUDING PRINCIPAL BEFORE HIRING THEM AS TEACHERS FOR CHILDREN, irrespective of their educational qualification. This heinous crime has become a regular news.We have of similar news of crime from other well known schools in Delhi, Kolkata, Jharkhand,U.P etc. This law must be amended as soon as possible to stop this forever and strict punishment must be implemented to ensure the school authorities follow this law.The school management and authorities must be answerable for everything.At the same time i would request our education minister to seriously investigate the matter and take serious action against this private school in Kolkata as this the second of the same type of case in the school. I would request each and everybody to sign this petition in support of that small child and many like her to secure and safe guard their future.
