New Delhi [India], Apr 27 (ANI): The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) has issued a notice to the Education Department to take action against a private school after it refused permission to a rape victim to attend classes in the institution. DCW Chairperson Swati Maliwal said, "This is a very serious matter. The girl is being punished for no fault of hers and it is very embarrassing and unacceptable matter in today's world." The parents of the class 10 student have accused the school administration of gross insensitivity. The parents said that the school has said the victim would be promoted to class 11 only if she stops coming to school. They said the school principal has told them to remove their daughter from the school and enrol her in a new one. (ANI)
