Officials of Madhya Pradesh’s Dr Hari Singh Gaur University have suspended a caretaker of a varsity hostel on Monday after she forced girls to strip to find who was menstruating.
According to reports, more than 40 students complained to the university vice chancellor on Sunday. They informed the VC Professor RP Tiwary about being body searched after a used sanitary napkin was found outside a bathroom in the varsity’s New Rani Laxmi Bai Girls Hostel.
“The warden, Professor Chanda Ben, ordered the caretaker to body search the girls to find out who was menstruating,” the victims wrote to VC.
Soon after the incident was brought to notice the university vice chancellor visited the hostel and assured the girls that stringent action will be taken against the warden and the caretaker if found guilty.
“The girls have given a written complaint in which they alleged that were made to strip," the university's vice chancellor said.
Student bodies in Madhya Pradesh are protesting against the incident. The protesting students are demanding suspension of Chandra Ben.
