Girl student pushed into Boys restroom as punishment

Girl student pushed into Boys restroom as punishment

Well, a school in Hyderabad recently took their punishment to a different level when they made a 11-year-old girl stand in boys' washroom for not wearing her uniform.

The incident occurred at a school in Hyderabad. Before the girl could even answer, the staff member dragged her forcefully to the boys' washroom and told her to stand inside for some time as a punishment for not wearing the uniform. "Shift me to some other school" she pleaded with her parent. When the non-teaching staff of the school saw her without her uniform, they demanded an explanation. Newsminute reports that the traumatised girl has since refused to go to school. "I just asked the student to stand outside class, which happens to be located next to the boys' washroom".

Rubbishing the claims of the PE trainer, the girl's father, Ramakrishna said that her daughter was indeed closed off in the boy's washroom. When she came out, the nonteaching employee told three teachers about the punishment she had given to the girl. The parents have not lodged any complaint with the police.

Her father has approached a child rights NGO, which has chose to file a complaint against the school authorities.

Meanwhile, students unions staged a protest at the school on Monday morning. The girl said a firm "No" to going to that school anymore. They sent the video to an NGO named Balala Hakkula Sangam that aims to save child rights and fights against child labour. Angry parents and child rights activists vandalised and broke furniture of the administration office of a school. Sangareddy district education officer Vijaya Kumari said an FIR has been booked against the teacher under the Child Rights Protection Act and Sections 82, 334 and 43 of the Juvenile Justice Act. Later on Monday, the committee visited the school premises to probe the case and issued a showcause notice to the management.

Telangana Deputy Chief Minister Kadiam Srihari, who holds the education portfolio, said strong action would be taken against those who meted out inhuman treatment to the girl. Police filed cases against the principal and the PET under sections 342 (wrongful confinement), 324 (causing hurt), 506 (criminal intimidation), 504 (intentional insult) & 34 of the Indian Penal Code.
