Lahore forms committee to investigate harassment allegations against LGS teachers
The District Education Authority of Lahore has formed a three-member committee to investigate the teachers at the Lahore Grammar School 1A1 accused of harassing women students.
The decision was taken after multiple students of the school came out with their stories of harassment on social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.
The inquiry team has been instructed to present a report to the authority within three days and "dig out the factual position on the subject matter". It is headed by Government Islamia High School Principal Ghyas Sabir.
Four LGS employees have been primarily accused of harassing students. According to the students, the suspects used to send them inappropriate pictures and tried to touch their private body parts. When we refused, they threatened and blackmailed us, they added.
The students even said that they had approached one of the school's teachers with these complaints but instead of helping them she told them to stay quiet.
The administration of the school has sacked all four employees. "They include a chemistry teacher, an admin officer, a guard and an accountant," the school's management claimed.
The police, however, said that the school has not registered any complaint against the accused men so far.
None of the suspected teachers responded to SAMAA TV's messages or calls.
