In a case where a physics teacher was accused of sexual harassment and molestation of a minor girl, the Delhi High Court held that in dealing with such matters, paramount consideration must be given to the well-being of the child whose mental psyche was vulnerable, impressionable and in a developing stage.
The petitioners have told the Court that though they are not directly affected by Rajasthan High Court’s order, they had approached the Court as the State, which is the Guardian of the interests of the persons living in the State, has chosen not to appeal and if the accused teacher will go unpunished in this case, not only him but other teachers may also commit similar offences with girls in future.
