Hearing of sexual harassment case involving Kendriya Vidyalaya principal postponed to Feb 25
Considering the delay in initiating action against the principal, the commission had summoned the commissioner of Kendriya Vidyalaya Sanghathan (KVS). Thakur had been arrested under POCSO Act and was later released on bail. The commission had also questioned the transfer of the principal to Karwar, who was supposed to be suspended.
The hearing, which was held on Friday, was postponed as the KVS commissioner did not turn up. Instead, a deputy commissioner had represented him. But the chairperson of the KCPCR, Kripa Alva, demanded the KVS commissioner’s presence before the commission.
The KVS had issued an order suspending Thakur on Thursday evening.
