Schoolgirls feel insecure at camps
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, July 10: The schoolgirls being taken for camps by educational institutions have complained of insecurity during the outings while their parents have expressed concern over the issue.
For the past few weeks, the educational institutes, mostly private run, are taking students including girls to camps even against the reservations of their parents.
Even during the sensitive situation when City was under siege following fire at Dastgeer Sahib (RA) shrine, a leading English medium school took the girls for a camp.
“At a time when there was risk to lives of people, the school authorities took our wards for camp, much against our wishes,” said a delegation of parents.
In a recent camp, at a resort, the girl students allegedly faced misbehavior at the hands of counterparts from a boys school.
The parents and their wards complained of sense of insecurity at the camps.
When contacted the Director School Education Kashmir, Muhammad Shafi Rather said the issue of camping had come to his notice.
“What I have been told is that parents are fleeced for money in the name of camps. Rest I don’t know,” Rather said.
When asked about the complaints of insecurity, he said: “I have no control to stop camping by private schools because they don’t come in my domain.”
“However, now that it has come into my notice I will look into the matter,” he added.
