Woman school teacher allegedly strips two girls as punishment in front of entire class in Uttarakhand
In a shameful incident, a woman teacher from Uttarakhand's JP International Public School was booked after parents of two students complained to the police that their daughters were allegedly stripped by the teacher, as per a report of Times of India.

After the incident, a case under section 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the IPC was registered by the police.

This disgraceful incident which took place on Tuesday, has been reported from Landaura, which lies 8 km from Roorkee in Haridwar district.

According to the local police, after scoring poor marks in an exam of English subject, the accused teacher decided to humiliate those girls (both girls of class-VI) in the classroom. In an extreme step of public shaming of the girls, the teacher allegedly took off their shirts in front of the entire class as punishment.

"Parents of both girls alleged that the teacher first reprimanded their daughters and then took off their shirts in front of the entire class as they had performed poorly in an English test. When the girls reported the incident to their parents, they went to the school and protested against the teacher," Manikant Mishra, Superintendent of police said.

On the other hand, parent of one of the students said, "We demand strict action against the school administration for not installing CCTVs in classes and not terminating the teacher for her behaviour."

However, the Principal of JP Inter College, Amita Rathore has refuted the allegations of the victim girls terming their charges as baseless and said that nothing such happened in the school. She also added that their allegations are just a conspiracy to defame the image of the school, as per the media report.

Meanwhile, district education officer (basic), Braham Pal Singh Saini has sought a report from the deputy education officer demanding to take strict action against the accused teacher and school administration in this matter.
