An Indian man allegedly entered a school and undressed two minor girls before urinating in front of them.

The principal of the school in the National Capital Delhi told the girls to stay "quiet" and "forget" about the incident, the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) said Wednesday as they demanded an arrest in the case.

The victims were waiting inside a classroom for their teacher when an unknown man entered and removed their clothes on April 30, according to the Indian Express.

“He removed the clothes of a girl and muttered obscenities at her. Then he walked over to another girl and removed her clothes and his clothes as well. Thereafter, the accused closed the door of the classroom and urinated in front of the students… This is a serious matter and warrants immediate action,” the commission wrote in its notice to the Delhi police and the civic body, East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC), which runs the school.

“The students informed the principal and class teacher about the incident but they were asked to keep quiet and forget about the incident,” the statement said, according to the outlet.

The police filed a case under sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act on May 1.

A senior police officer said there are no CCTV cameras installed at the entrance or on the premises of the school. Investigators spoke to the two children and got the description of the suspect.

“We took cognizance immediately and are investigating the matter,” a senior police officer said, according to the outlet. "A special team has been formed to look into it … No CCTVs were found installed at the entrance or inside. However, a number of CCTVs have been examined in the vicinity. They are being analyzed to trace the accused. We also took statements of the girls and on the basis of the description given by them, sketches have been prepared."

The officer said investigators “zeroed in” on two possible suspects using the sketch.

“The principal has claimed that she was unwell and could not reach the school on time. Detailed statements will be taken from the teachers of the school,” said EDMC mayor Shyam Sunder Aggarwal, reported Hindustan Times.

Aggarwal said disciplinary action will be taken if lapses are found in how school authorities dealt with the incident.

No arrests have been made so far in connection with the sexual assault incident.

Delhi Commission for Women chief Swati Maliwal said on Twitter Wednesday, according to the Free Press Journal, “The accused should be arrested immediately… Accountability must be certain.”
