In yet another shameful incident that has been reported, a teacher in government school ordered the school girls to strip so that he could ascertain as to who may have thrown a used sanitary pad.
The incident has caused embarrassment to the local authorities and government.
It is said that Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh directed for transfer of the teachers of a government school in state’s Fazilka district.
These teachers were accused of allegedly stripping girl students after the discovery of a sanitary pad in the school’s toilet.
The teachers were reportedly trying to find out which of the girls were wearing a sanitary pad.
A video clip showed some girls crying and complaining that teachers stripped them on the premises of their school in Kundal village three days back.
Further disciplinary action, as per conduct rules, will be taken once the formal report is received, an official spokesperson of the Punjab government said.>
