Bihar, Bihar school harassment, two minor girls stripped, bihar students stripped, begusarai, lack of money, school uniform, bihar news, indian express The girls’ father, Chunchun Kumar Sao, who runs a small provision store, alleged that when he went to the school to lodge a complaint against the teacher, principal Mukesh Kumar threatened him for not paying the money. Sao lodged a police complaint on Friday afternoon.

The principal and a teacher of a private school in Begusarai, Bihar, have been arrested for allegedly stripping two sisters — a Class I and a nursery student – for failing to pay for their school uniform.The incident took place Thursday at the B R Education Academy at Koria village in Mufassil police station area.

The sisters had to pay Rs 1,600 for two pairs of uniform that the school had distributed when the current session began in April, but had failed to do so. When they came to school on Thursday, class teacher Anjana Devi allegedly stripped the girls, aged six-and-a-half years and five, and sent them home in undergarments.

The girls’ father, Chunchun Kumar Sao, who runs a small provision store, alleged that when he went to the school to lodge a complaint against the teacher, principal Mukesh Kumar threatened him for not paying the money. Sao lodged a police complaint on Friday afternoon.

“I had requested the school authorities to give me some more time for making the payment as I am going through some financial problems,” he said. “Now, I am considering putting my daughters in some other school. The incident has hurt them — they were mocked by their classmates,” said Sao.

Begusarai SP Ranjeet Kumar Mishra told The Indian Express: “As it was a written complaint of a serious nature, we immediately sent a DSP to the school. The DSP spoke to some students and local residents and was convinced that the two girls were stripped.

    Hope the Police follows the same procedure of striping the Prin l and the Teacher and let them be without dress in jail for stripping the girl child's and they deserve this. Do ensure that even after their release from the jails they should not enter the school premises and if they enter, students must strip their dresses and make them run from the school to their residences.

    Strip the CM Nitish and Laloo for this arajakta in Schools this is bound to happen when goonda raj is rampant in Bihar .. CM and Laloo want Shahabuddin out on parole ..... Atleast strip the school teacher and prin l.... and make them pay .... This is the state of condition of our schools in rural India and B and C class towns ... Along with free mid day meals we need to have subsidised clothes for Students ..... 800 Rs for a school uniform is expensive need to work out a bulk price ... similarly good quality toilets and wash basins .... School should not teach its children about shaming someone by stripping someone ... today the rest of the children laughed and got their first lesson in Sadism ... Many schools in India strip the students when they do not pay fees ...
