KVS orders probe against principal

The Kendriya Vidyalaya Sanghatan has ordered a departmental enquiry against the principal of Kendriya Vidyalaya Hebbal, who was arrested and released on sexual harassment charges.

According to Devakumar, deputy commissioner, Bengaluru division, Kendriya Vidyalaya Sanghatan, the headquarters has ordered an enquiry into the matter. This comes a week after a police complaint was lodged at Sadashivanagar police station.

A 17-year-old girl student from the school claimed that the principal had harassed her by using sexually coloured remarks. He spoke to her for over an hour in his cabin much after school hours on the pretext of counselling her to score better in examination.

A week after this incident, the victim came forth to file a Pocso complaint and the principal was arrested for making obscene gestures and indulging in lewd talk. However, just a day after this, he was granted bail.
