Indian university students made to strip over sanitary pad
DELHI: Female students in an Indian university were asked to strip for dumping a used sanitary pad in the hostel washroom, a media report said.
Four employees, including hostel wardens, of the Akal University in Bathinda in Indian Punjab were terminated after the students held a protest at the campus, NDTV reported.
According to the report, the hostel warden asked the girls to strip “to check who among them had dumped a used sanitary pad in the hostel washroom.”.
The university administration terminated two security guards and two hostel wardens.
Students gathered at the university campus on Tuesday and held a protest, demanding action against all those involved.
Last year, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh had ordered transfer of two teachers at a government school in Fazilka district for stripping school girls in a similar incident.
A video clip showed some girls crying and complaining that teachers stripped them in the school in Kundal village.
