JAMMU: Kranti Dal, Jammu and Kashmir, on Wednesday paid tributes to a seven-year-old student, who was found allegedly killed at a prominent private school in Gurugram Haryana. Kranti Dal members led by its President Pritam Sharma paid candle light tributes to the student and observed two-minute silence in the memory of departed soul. They also prayed to Almighty to grant peace to departed soul and courage to bereaved family member to bear this irreparable loss.
Talking to reporters after paying tributes, Pritam Sharma urged PDP-BJP Coalition Government to issue advisory to the government as well as private school authorities asking them to ensure fool-proof security of the school children while they are in schools so that no untoward incident happens with students.
He said that brutal murder of the child within the campus of a prominent school and alleged rape of six-year-old student have sent shock waves across the country and in Jammu and Kashmir State also, with the stunned parents calling in question the efficacy of the security arrangements made by the schools.
He asked State Home Minister to ask State Police Chief to direct the school authorities to complete verification of school staffers, including security guards, bus drivers and bus conductors, at the earliest.
Besides, he stressed on CCTV cameras being installed at several places in the campuses particularly near toilets.
There would be no compromise on the security of schoolchildren, he said, adding that the private schools were earning a lot of money in the form of fees and their management could hire private security guards.
Others present on the occasion included Raj Roop Singh, Th Karnal Chand, Tarun Gupta, Anil Sharma, Nitin Walia, Nitin Dhamin, Rajinder Bhagat, Bhagwan Sharma, Sankul Gupta, K.L Gupta and Bachan Lal Gupta.
