Every staff member at every Delhi school will have to undergo mandatory police verification within three weeks, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia announced today amid outrage over the murder of a 7-year-old student at Gurgaon's Ryan International School.

"All schools, whether government-run or private, will have to mandatorily install CCTV cameras in classrooms, washroom area and playgrounds as well".

A report from the team said numerous CCTV cameras installed in the school campus were not functioning.

Mr Sisodia said the Delhi government will form a high level committee, comprising education directors, the transport team, school principals, and police personnel which will create proper procedures and provide recommendations.

Sisodia passed the directions after the murder of a seven-year-old student in Gurgaon's Ryan International and the alleged rape of five-year-old girl inside the school premises in Gandhi Nagar.

Hitting out at private schools, Sisodia said there are several schools that enjoy political protection, and flout rules and commit crimes with impunity.

Meanwhile, a senior official said the Delhi Police will carry out the verification process on priority basis.

With regard to the shameful event of rape in a plush school in Delhi, the education minister said that every detail is being looked into and action will be taken against culprit. Police officers are also interacting with school authorities and sensitising them about safety measures that need to be in place for children, he said.
