The horrifying incidents of crime against school kids in recent times have raised questions about children’s safety in schools. A seven-year-old boy was allegedly murdered by a school bus conductor in a school in Gurugram. Soon, another incident of a five-year-old girl being allegedly raped by the peon of a school was reported.
Actor Sanjay Dutt has also expressed how scared he is reading about such incidents. While speaking about his upcoming film Bhoomi, he said, “It’s scary. I mean kids are not even safe in school, after whatever happened to the little girl in Gurgaon (rape of a five-year-old girl), it can horrify any parent. Everybody has to be very careful as far as their kids are concerned. It’s a frightening time for parents regarding the security of their children.”
Dutt also feels that the atmosphere is not safe for children these days. “As a father, I always tell my kids to do their activity and come back home, spend time with us, spend time at home, because at least that is safer. Baahar mahaul sahi nahi hai (the environment outside is not right),” he added.
In fact, the actor also feels that the scenario is as unsafe for kids as it is for women. “I think this is the time when we not only should start respecting women but also be careful and protective towards children,” said Dutt.
