A very shameful incident has come to light from Itanagar, Anuchal Pradesh where 88 girl students were allegedly forced to undress by their three teachers for writing vulgar words against the Principal of the school.
Eighty-eight students of class VI and VII of Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya, Tani Happa (New Sagalee) in Papum Pare district were subjected to the humiliating treatment on November 23, police said. The matter, however, came to light on later when, the victims approached the All Sagalee Students Union (ASSU), who then took the step forward for the justice and then, filed an FIR with the local police.
” APPDSU president Nabam Tado said, “The school authorities did not speak to the parents of the students before punishing them,”
According to the complaint, two assistant teachers and a junior teacher forced the students to undress before other students after a piece of paper was discovered in which vulgar words were written about the principal and a girl student.
In a statement, Papum Pare Superintendent of Police Tumme Amo stated that the case had been forwarded to the women police station. And “The officer-in-charge of the [women’s] police station said the victims and their parents along with the teachers will be interrogated before registering a case,”
The Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) has condemned the incident and said such “heinous act” by the teachers might affect the students.
“Tampering with a child’s dignity is against the law as well as the constitution,” it said in a statement.
