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.
