Background Checks Yet To Begin In Most Schools

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 scrutinised 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.

When contacted, Additional Commissioner of police (law and order) Alok Kumar
said, “We have already started the process of background verification. If
any school feels that the verification is not done in their schools, they
are free to approach us again.”
