A Class X girl was allegedly asked to strip by a teacher in a government school in Damoh after a classmate complained that someone had stolen Rs 70 from her school bag.
The incident happened on Thursday. The Dalit student alleged that one more girl was also strip searched by the female teacher, who refused to listen to them. The girls narrated their ordeal after returning home. Their parents came to the school on Friday and reportedly protested.
While no complaint has been lodged with the police, the district education officer has served a show cause notice to the school principal.
