Over a dozen girls in UP school quit classes alleging harassment, 3 held
The complainant reported that the accused made lewd remarks to the girls, which forced the girls to lock themselves in their homes
Over a dozen girls aged between 13 and 16 in a private school in Amroha's Hasanpur region have allegedly stopped attending classes after facing continued harassment by a group of youths from a nearby village.
The school manager filed a police complaint on Friday, 15 September, against the accused and an FIR was registered in the matter under relevant IPC sections.
Three youths, identified as Mohammad Anas, Vikas Kumar and Rhitik Kumar, all residents of Pipali village, were arrested on Saturday, 16 September.
The complainant stated that “the accused would pass lewd remarks at the girls. When the students complained to the principal, who confronted the trio, things escalated and they became more aggressive. This forced the girls to lock themselves in their homes.”
Amroha SP Kunwar Anupam Singh said: "As of now, none of the girls have come forward to file a complaint. We are trying to contact them. The allegation that the girls stopped attending school due to harassment has not been confirmed yet. We are investigating the matter thoroughly."
