Teachers arrested for strip searching girl student
Suri: Two women teachers were arrested today for allegedly strip searching a girl student on the suspicion that she had stolen money, at Kaligati Smriti Nari Siksha Niketan here in Birbhum district, police sources said on Saturday.
The girl, a student of class-XI, filed a complaint with the police that two teachers, Chaitali Gupta and Lipika Saha, took her to the teachers` room yesterday and stripped searched her alleging that she had stolen Rs 150 from another student, the sources said.
The money, however, was not found on her.
The girl`s father told the police that she broke into tears after returning home.
Gupta and Saha were produced in a local court today which granted them bail.
The headmistress of the school, Kalpana Roy, however, contended that the matter was exaggerated and only the student`s bag was searched.
