Sonbhadra, (Uttar Pradesh) [India] Feb. 7 (ANI): Condemning the shameful act in Uttar Pradesh's Sonbhadra where a teacher stripped paraded class eight girls students on not finishing their homework, women activist Shashwati Ghosh said it is an offense for any girl to be punished in such manner in an educational institution. "It is an extreme offense for any girl, particularly for adolescence girls, that they did not do their homework so they were paraded in semi-nude condition. I hope this will go as an example to other teachers also whether she is a head teacher or not," Ghosh told ANI. She further said that she believe the education department will take proper care of the entire incident and in future there will not be repeats of such incidents because girls or any student has a self respect and the teachers should take that into consideration. A teacher of Girls Junior High School made students of class eight parade in semi-nude condition as a punishment for not completing their home work. According to reports, the head teacher Meena Singh in order to punish the girls for not doing their homework allegedly stripped them and asked them to parade in semi-nude condition on school compound for two hours on Saturday. The picture of girls in semi-nude condition was also taken by mobile phone. Moreover Meena Sindh threatened to leak the video if they do not complete their home work. After knowing this inhuman act the parents of girls reported the incident to the district magistrate requesting him for appropriate action in this regard. After the incident was reported, district magistrate said the teacher has been suspended with immediate effect, and further departmental investigation is on. (ANI)
