MANDYA: Following the rape and murder of a 10-year old girl by a 51-year old man at a tuition centre in Malavalli on October 11, the district administration has now taken certain measures to prevent such incidents.

The Deputy Director of Public Instruction (DDPI) of Mandya, Javare Gowda, told media persons that the district administration has taken certain measures in order to control unauthorised tuition centers. Those wanting to run tuition centrs for students of Classes 1 to 10 should register at the DDPI’s office by paying Rs 5,000 and should havee Rs 1 lakh in fixed deposit. The centre should have all basic infrastructure, including CCTV cameras. If tuition is conducted without permission, a case will be filed against them. Henceforth, the authorities concerned will keep an eye on such illegal tuition centres.

Jaware Gowda, DDPI of Mandya district, has issued a warning to unauthorised tuition centres.

The Malavalli tuition centre, called Amritha Sinchana Jnana Kutira Centre, where the girl was raped and murdered, is unauthorised, inquiries have revealed. The BEO has already submitted a report to this effect to the district administration.

The DDPI has also issued a circular to identify unauthorised tuition centres in Mandya district. “Such incidents should not be repeated again. If I get a report from the BEOs, I will take strict action against them”, he said.

Jaware Gowda further said, “Kantharaju is not a qualified teacher as he studied only up to PUC. Parents should be aware of these government norms before sending their children to any tuition centres. If any teachers from government-aided or unaided schools conduct tuition classes, we will take disciplinary action against them.”
