Shardamani High School teacher arrested, Admn orders probe into Class IX student harassment charges

Jamshedpur : In a significant turn of events, the city police Saturday arrested the lady teacher of Shardamani Girls High School, Sakchi for compelling a class IX student of the school to strip in the name of checking for ‘chits’ during examination.

The student had later set herself on fire and had suffered 80 per cent burns. She is under treatment at TMH now.

A case was registered against the teacher C Das based on the statement of the student.

The student has reportedly said in her statement that she was forced to strip by the teacher in the presence of other students.

The teacher, on the other hand, has claimed innocence and has said that she was only discharging her duties as a teacher.
