A day after a three-year-old girl was molested by the cleaner of the school bus at a Juhu school, some schools have called for meetings with their school bus' drivers, conductors and lady attendants in their respective schools to make them aware of their responsibility towards school children

Asha Mohan, principal, North Bombay Welfare Society, Ghatkopar, said, “I have called for a meeting with our school’s bus drivers and conductors tomorrow. 

I will speak to them about the molestation case and will also make them aware of their responsibility towards our children when they are in the school bus.”

Anil Garg, chairman of the School Bus Owners Association, said, “Our bus drivers, conductors and attendants will be given a formal training tomorrow. They will be taught about the discipline they must maintain and their responsibility towards the children.” A school in the western suburbs called a meeting with almost 100 of its staff, comprising bus drivers, conductors and lady staff yesterday.
