BIS #4875 ALL FOR A CAUSE

BBIS Correspondent

 

AHMEDNAGAR, JUL 29, 2016: Don Bosco Vidyalaya, Savedi, Ahmednagar strongly protested the gang rape and murder of a 14-year-old school girl  from Kopardi taluka of the district of Ahmednagar on July 13.

 

The entire management, teaching and non-teaching staff along with all the students had black ribbons as the sign of protest for the whole day. The students then undertook a silent protest march along the nearby colony. There have been number of other protests across the district of Ahmednagar over the same issue.

 

The incident took place when the girl was returning home from her grandfather's house, only around 500 metres away from her house. Her body was eventually found under a tree, while her bicycle was abandoned close to a canal. A post mortem confirmed rape and revealed torture marks.

 

Since the incident occurred, there is growing fear and anxiety among the parents about the safety of girl students in the society.  Such is the fear that some parents are even scared to send their girls to school.  Don Bosco Vidyalaya, Savedi, Ahmednagar management, staff and students ask one simple yet fundamental question,' Will our students have safe atmosphere in the society?'
