Background Checks Yet to Begin in Most Schools
A majority of the schools in the city say the police are yet to begin the verification process for their staff members, despite being given all the details. After the sexual assault of a girl student in a Bangalore East school, police had made background verification mandatory. The school managements were told to provide details of staff members along with their addresses to the police. This would be scrutinized and the files sent to the jurisdictional police station, from where the police would visit their homes. However, schools say that the process is yet to be completed.
