ImagePatna: A class III girl student from Dalit community studying in a government middle school was stripped naked in the presence of the school teacher by some boys of the same school in Bihar, according to a late-reaching report.

The incident which relates to an upgraded middle school at Mohanpur block of Samastipur district in Bihar took place on 25 July 2009 but came to light when the Dalit girls stopped attending the schools.

Later, the angry villagers reported the matter to Divisional Commissioner, Darbhanga Dr Rana Avadhesh who ordered for a through probe. “We found the incident true during the inquiry and have recommended for stern action against the school principal and disciplinary action against the accused students,” said a police official who conducted the probe said wishing not to be quoted.

This is the third incident of stripping of females in the last one fortnight in Bihar. Earlier, a woman had been stripped in the streets of Patna while in Sitamarhi, a Dalit woman had been stripped by some upper caste members when her goat strayed into their field.
