Modesty of girl students in Chhattisgarh allegedly outraged: NHRC issues notice to state govt
The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has taken suo-motu cognizance of a media report that the modesty of two girl students was outraged when their clothes were removed by a relative of the Superintendent of Adiwasi Kanya Hostel at village Pattakela under Bagicha Vikas Khand, Jashpur, Chhattisgarh.
When a friend of the victim students protested against this, she was also ill-treated and beaten. The girls got so terrorized by this act that they left the Hostel. They were studying in fifth class, as per a release by NHRC.

The Commission has observed that the contents of the press report, if true, raise a serious issue of violation of human rights of the victim girl students. Accordingly, it has issued notices to the District Magistrate and Superintendent of Police, Jashpur, Chhattisgarh calling for reports within two weeks.

According to the media report, carried on the 25th August, 2015, the incident led to protest by villagers alleging that the husband of the Hostel Superintendent also stays with her in the Hostel premises and their relatives had been harassing the girl students.

The issue of Hostel Superintendent's husband staying in the Girls' Hostel was brought to the notice of the District Collector in 2013 also but no action was taken.
