Shantinekatan girl joins another school
Shantinekatan (WB): Despite repeated requests from the
Visva-Bharati university here to resume classes, the parents of the
traumatised girl who was made to drink her own urine today got her
admitted to another school.
The girl's father Manoj Mistry said
the ten-year-old girl has got admission in Bolpur High School. "She would
not have felt comfortable to study in the Patha Bhavan School, run the by
university, after that incident. She also didn't want to study there
anymore," Mistry said.
Late last week, the authorities had apologised to the class V student's
parents for the incident and had allowed the girl to attend school as a
day-boarder. Uma Poddar, the superintendent of Karabi hostel, who had
forced the girl to drink her own urine as a punishment for bed-wetting,
was arrested and later suspended by the varsity.
Last Saturday, the university authorities had sent a fresh report to the
office of the Union HRD Ministry in which, according to sources, they
informed the PMO of the steps taken by them to provide mental support to
the victim's family and bring back the girl to school.
