In a shocking incident, a teacher allegedly made a seventh standard student in West Bengal strip for not following the prescribed dress code.
A girl student was allegedly stripped in a class by a lady teacher in West Bengal after she ignored the teacher's diktat regarding dress code, police officials said on Thursday.
A Class 7 student of the Beri Gopalpur Adarsha Uccha Vidyalaya in Gaighata area of North 24-Parganas district faced the humiliation after she ignored orders about wearing specific uniforms on Thursdays.
"As I didn't wear a particular dress I am supposed to wear on Thursday according to school rules, the teacher stripped me off my skirt in front of the whole class," said the student.
The girl's family later lodged a police complaint.
The school managing committee said the teacher has been taken to task and she has given an undertaking not to repeat her action.
"She has given an undertaking that she won't repeat the act," said school managing committee secretary Basudeb Ghosh.
