An 11-year-old girl was sent to the boys’ washroom as a punishment for not wearing the school uniform by a teacher at a private school in Hyderabad.

The Telangana government ordered an inquiry into the incident on Monday after the Andhra Pradesh Child Rights Association lodged a complaint with the State Human Rights Commission and also the police.

Child rights association president P Achyuta Rao said he has sought action against the insensitive staff and the school management. He said confining a girl to the boys’ washroom was nothing short of sexual abuse of a child.

Rao said he received a complaint from the girl’s father, A Ramakrishna, on Sunday, saying his daughter, studying in Class 5 in Rao’s High School inside BHEL premises, Ramachandrapuram on the city outskirts, went to the school on Saturday without wearing the uniform.

As she was entering her class, her physical education teacher Priyanka stopped her and asked her the reason she was not wearing her uniform. The girl told the teacher she had given the uniform for being washed. Enraged at this, Priyanka dragged her to the boys’ washroom on the first floor of the school building and made her stand there for some time.

“Some students from Class 4 saw me in the washroom and laughed at me. I felt very bad and ashamed,” she said in the video clipping that her father sent to the child rights association along with his complaint.
