A day after a video surfaced on social media showing the principal of Saraswati Vidya Mandir in UP’s Kaushambi sexually assaulting a girl, she tried to commit suicide by jumping in front of a train on Saturday. As it stands it is not clear whether the girl survived or not. 

On Friday, it came to light that a school principal sexually molested a girl in Kaushambi on the pretext of providing her the benefits of various government schemes. Reports suggest that, soon after the incident, on the complaint of the victim’s mother, the police registered a case against the accused under POCSO act and started a manhunt to nab the accused. 

The victim's family has demanded the strictest punishment for the school principal.
