The principal of a school in West Bengal where a minor girl student died after being allegedly ragged by her seniors said on Wednesday that she was forced to resign by the police “under instructions from the mob”. Oindrila Das, a Class 5 student at the Christ Church School at Dum Dum in North 24-Parganas district, died on September 11 , a week after she was allegedly locked up inside the school toilet by some of her seniors who demanded money from her as part of ragging.
A day after her death, hundreds of people — mostly parents and guardians — ransacked the 131—year—old school, forced the principal and other teachers inside a dark room, and eventually forced principal Helen Sircar to resign. Hours later, she was arrested.
Sircar Wednesday virtually accused the police and the mob of colluding during the rampant vandalism Sep 12 following the girl’s death.IANS
