The sexual assault of a child at a Kolkata school has exposed gaps in safety in schools. If your child's school does have a CCTV, it's because the school has chosen to put them up. Not because there are laws that make CCTVs at schools a must. The state doesn't monitor the schools. The boards they are affiliated to have some safety guidelines but don't check if they are followed. That is why the school where the four-year-old was abused got away with not a single CCTV in place though a girl was molested there three years ago.
