Helen Sarkar,the principal of the school,was arrested for negligence of duty (Section 304A of IPC) on September 12,a day after the death of 11-year-old student Oindrila Das who was confined inside a toilet allegedly by her seniors in an ugly instance of ragging.

The incident triggered a violent agitation by angry guardians who ransacked the institution on September 12,forcing the principal to tender her resignation.
