An employee of a private school in Haryana’s Panipat city allegedly tried to sexually assault a Class 4 girl in the toilet, the police told PTI on Thursday. The incident comes less than two weeks after a Class 2 student was murdered in the toilet of Ryan International School in Gurugram.

The police said the Class 4 student was found with scratches on her neck and shoulders, and added that the suspect was yet to be identified, the Hindustan Times reported. Some media reports, however, claimed that the man had allegedly raped the student.

The sub-inspector at Women Police Station in Panipat, Kavita, told PTI that the girl’s teachers first found her crying. “She insisted on meeting her parents and they were called,” she added. The parents later lodged a police complaint after they saw the injury marks on her body.

Panipat District Education Officer Udai Pratap visited the school on Thursday. “CCTV cameras are installed at many points in the school, and their footage is being scrutinised,” he said.

The incident triggered a protest by several parents outside the school. They accused the school authorities of not help the family, according to The Indian Express.
