A girl was allegedly stripped in class by a woman teacher in West Bengal after she ignored the latter's diktat on dress code, police officials said on Thursday.
The Class 7 student of the Beri Gopalpur Adarsha Uccha Vidyalaya in Gaighata area of North 24-Parganas district faced the humiliation after she did not follow instructions on wearing a specific uniform 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 had been taken to task and that she gave 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.
