The principal of Christ Church Girls’ School, Helen Sarkar, who was arrested on Thursday following the death of a student, was on Friday produced before the Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate’s Court in Barrackpore, which remanded her to three day’s police custody.
“Ms. Sarkar was produced before the ACJM’s court in Barrackpore, which remands her to police custody for three days under section 304A of IPC,” DCDD under Barrackpore Police Commissionerate Debashis Bez said in Kolkata on Friday.
Ms. Sarkar was arrested last night on the charge of negligence of duty after she resigned from the principal’s post under pressure from a multitude of guardians who ransacked the school offices and damaged furniture in protest against the alleged confinement of 11-year-old Oindrila Das in a toilet by seniors, which allegedly led to her death.
Meanwhile, another case has been registered by the victim’s family against the doctor under whose treatment the patient’s condition allegedly deteriorated. “This case will be added with the main complaint in the case,” Mr. Bez said.
The police said that yet another case had been registered against those who ransacked the school on the basis of a complaint by a teacher in the school.
