A shocking case of tender-aged girls students being subjected to a humiliating punishment has come to light in the city-based CK Prajapati School.
A female teacher allegedly forced two class II girls to unbutton their shirts in front of their classmates as a punishment for not doing their homework on Saturday. The incident came to light when parents of the girls rushed to the school in Laxmipura and demanded strict action against the teacher Dharmishta Rathod.
Parents of the victimized girl Khushboo (name changed) noticed that she was strangely keeping very quite after coming from school. She also told them that she did not want go to the school anymore. After much coaxing, the girl finally revealed the trauma to her parents. She also said that another girl too was asked to open the buttons of her shirt for not completing homework.
After, knowing the truth, Khushboo's mother along with parents of the other girls reached the school on Wednesday morning and created ruckus.
"It was very shocking for us when she narrated the incident. Humiliating a child in front of the entire class like this is very traumatizing," said the girl's father, who is a priest. He added that the girls were not asked to keep their shirts unbuttoned for the entire period but for some time.
"Whether it is for one hour or one minute, how can the teacher behave with such small girls in this manner?," he added.
The family, however, decided to not lodge a police complaint against the teacher and school administration.
Following parents' complaint, the school administration immediately sought Rathod's resignation.
Khushboo's father claimed that when his wife confronted the teacher, she admitted that she had asked to unbutton the shirts but had not really done it. She only wanted to set an example in the class and has also done this in the past too with other students, he said.
Defending Rathod's actions school principal Vasanti Patel said, "The teacher may have said but she told me that she had not unbuttoned the shirts. Later, today when I went on rounds, other students of the girls' class told me, on asking, that the teacher had not said anything about unbuttoning."
The parents are now planning to shift her to another school after the academic year ends.

For weeks wildlife enthusiasts and animal lovers were campaigning to save Avni, a tigress in Maharashtra, for which the government had issued a shoot at sight order because she was allegedly a man-eater.
But even as the campaigners continued to make their desperate attempts, the news which they feared has come.
'Man eating' tigress Avni slain by sharp-shooter in Indian forest - sparking huge backlash from animal activists
A man eating tigress thought to have devoured 13 people has been shot dead in India.
A 'sharp shooter' named Asgar Ali shot the tiger dead last night in India's Maharashtra state near the town of Yavatmal, police said.
The death of the endangered animal sparked mass anger. The Bengal tiger is the national animal of India.
The tiger, named Avni, had two cubs aged 10 months at the time of her death.
The tigress officially called T1 has been shot dead by the team of hunters which was dispatched to eliminate her.
The five-year-old tigress was shot dead on Friday night from near a road in Borati village by Asgar Ali Khan, son of sharp-shooter Shafath Ali Khan who was heading the hunt for her.
She was killed in a single shot, from point blank, without even making an attempt to tranquilize her and capture the tiger alive, which the activists were demanding.
The death of Avni leaves her two young cubs who are around 10-months-old, vulnerable, as the hunt team is yet to capture them or devise any solid plan to rehabilitate them.
The death of Avni is once again likely to ignite the debate over how animals are always on the receiving end when it comes to human-animal conflicts.
The order to shoot her dead was issued on September 4 was and was cleared by the Supreme Court on September 11 citing that she was a maneater.
According to the government records since June 2016, 13 people have been killed in tiger attacks in Pandharkawada divisional forest, 11 of whom were shepherds inside the forest and two in farms. Of the last five deaths, one was in December 2017, one in January 2018 and three in August.
However, those behind the campaign had pointed out that alleged deaths had happened inside the forest, where it was illegal to enter. They also alleged that out of the 13 bodies which were recovered, DNA tests were conducted only on 3 of them and tiger DNA was found only on one of the bodies.
Following the killing of Avani, activists are also likely to raise the fact that the tigress was shot dead by Asgar Ali Khan, while the Principal Chief Conservator of Forest (Wildlife) A K Mishra had given the shooting permission to his father Shafath Ali Khan who was away in Patna to attend the meeting of Bihar State Wildlife Board.
Last month, the Bombay High Court's Nagpur Bench admitted a petition that sought a stay on plans to kill the tigress and instead capture her alive. Wildlife activist Jerryl A. Banait contended that instead of killing her, which will orphan her cubs, the Forest Department should capture her alive, as per the Supreme Court orders on September 11.
Bengaluru-based activist Prerana Chakraborty said the tiger is being wrongly labelled as a ‘man-eater’.
“There is no proof that the tiger has eaten 13 people. Also, the animal had not left the forest, so it is the man’s fault for entering their territory,” she said.
