Girls in India are not even safe in government schools in Delhi, Women Safety is just a mere topic!
Rape in School: Shocking! 824 government schools in Delhi doesn't even have a Headmaster
Though the horrible incident occurred in July, the case has been registered in October and has been highlighted as a "serious matter" by DCW only after the victim recently approached the police. Just like everyone, education is a ticket to girls' better future, for themselves, and their families.
