Govt to seek transfer of case to Crime Branch

Tribune News Service

New Delhi, September 13

Following complaints, the Delhi Government is mulling to write to Lt Governor Anil Baijal seeking transfer of the case of sexual assault of a five-year-old schoolgirl in Gandhi Nagar from the police to the Crime Branch for a “fair investigation”.

In this regard, State Home Minister Satyendar Jain has apparently received complaints from Gandhi Nagar legislator Anil Bajpai about the alleged inaction by the investigating authorities concerned.

The child was allegedly raped by a peon inside the premises of a private school in Shahdara and later the accused was arrested.

The government recently ordered a magisterial probe into the case and the Sub-Divisional Magistrate (Sarita Vihar) is likely to submit his report in next one or two days.

Amid increased concerns over the safety on school premises after the killing of a seven-year-old student in Ryan International School, Gurugram, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had on September 11 ordered schools to install CCTV cameras covering their entire premises and complete police investigation of their non-teaching staff within three weeks.
