An investigation has been ordered against Sacred Heart School which had expelled Ruchika Girhotra following her molestation by former Haryana DGP SPS Rathore, said reports.
Reports said that Education Secretary Ram Niwas issued instructions to initiate investigation to find out the cause which resulted in the expulsion of the 14-year-old budding tennis star.
“We have instituted an inquiry. Sub Divisional Magistrate Prerna Puri has been made the inquiry officer. It will be time bound probe and we have asked her to complete the task within a week’s time,” Niwas said.
The minster noted that it was very old case and most of the principals and members of the management have changed, saying, “But still we have been able to dig out some circumstantial evidence. We will be able to place whatever material is available on record before the public.”
Madhu Parkash, mother of Aradhana, a friend of Ruchika, who has been pursuing the case, had filed a complaint with the Chandigarh Administration against the local convent institution Sacred Heart School alleging harassment to the girl as Rathore’s daughter was also a student of the same class.
