Allegation of sexual harassment

The organisation in their complaint to the Superintendent of Police, Kasargod, had alleged sexual harrassment of some girls of Government Upper Primary School at Kumbala, a member of the Childline told PTI.

The girl students were lured to the nearby shop allegedly by the shop owner and harassed them, she said.

The alleged incident came to light after the school headmaster had noticed money in the possession of the girls and on questioning they had revealed of the harassment, she said.

Meanwhile, youth organisations of various political parties had taken out a rally protesting against the incident and demanding the immediate arrest of the culprit.

Police had used minor force to disperse the activists who tried to damage the shop. In the melee some activists and a couple of mediapersons suffered injuries.
