Sexual harassment and rape cases in sevashram

Two teachers, including the head master of a sevashram were arrested for allegedly raping and sexually exploiting four girl students of Badoamboda sevashram of Kosagumuda block, Nabarangpur dist., Odisha.  While one is head master, another is a gana sishya (a teacher) and husband of the lady cook-cum-attendant. 
The victims were subjected to medical examination and one of them was found to be pregnant.
The sevashram, run by the State SC and ST welfare department, is situated at a distance of 55 k.m. from the dist-headquarter. The strength of the ashram is around 300, including 240 girls.
Sources said that many girls are exploiting by them and not speaking out of fear.  The Dist. Collector and the State Government have to take immediate action against those teachers. Otherwise no girl can dare to stay in any ashram in future.      May be the sexual harassment and rape in ashrams and organizations are the causes for which till now in Nabarangpur district, we don’t found any destitute home for women.                     Many popular politicians and richest persons of Nabarangpur and jharigaon told about the exploitation held at Dabugaon kanyashram, Bhimaguda kanyashram and Ratikhandiguda KBK girls hostel. But many from those people were exploited the innocent girls of that hostels/kanyashrams. All may be forget about a issue happened on Jharigaon previous year when computerised naked photo copy of a college girl joint with a man and distributed among the common people. Though police, media persons and political parties known about the issue all were remained silent. If the common people have no respect for the mothers and sisters of their own village then how can the state Government stop the violence. It's really very shameful and painful incident.
