Panipat (Haryana): [India], September 21 (ANI): A case has come to light in Haryana's Panipat, where a minor girl studying in Class IX of Millennium School was molested in a toilet.

A case has been registered in the regard and the police are probing the matter.

The police team interrogated five sweepers working at the school. However, the name of the accused could not be known.

The outraged parents staged a protest outside the school following the incident. Heavy police force has been deployed at the school.

The weeping girl came out of the bathroom and narrated the entire ordeal to her teacher but the school did not take any action.

The Millennium School has also given an affidavit in the education department that the school is safe at all levels. However, the school did not have CCTV cameras near the bathroom. (ANI)
