In the wake of boy’s murder in a Gurugram school bathroom and rape of a minor girl in a school here, the Delhi government on Monday announced police verification of non-teaching staff of all government/private schools in three weeks.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said all schools would furnish details of such staff within a week to police which in turn will complete the verification in 15 days.

Sisodia said the decision was taken in an emergency meeting here on Monday.

A decision to install closed-circuit television in all classrooms, stairways, galleries, washrooms, and other open spaces in all schools was also taken.

Though no deadline was given for this, Sisodia said, monthly reports on whether the CCTVs were functional or not should be submitted by all schools to the Delhi government.

He said a committee comprising Principals of schools of Municipal Corporations of Delhi, Delhi government, New Delhi Municipal Council, private ones and officials of transport and education departments to suggest steps to ensure student safety in schools.
