At least 16 schoolgirls were made to strip naked by their teachers in
eastern India after one student complained she had lost her pocket
money.
Officials said the girls in Jharkhand state were taken to a room and
strip-searched one by one at the weekend, while teachers looked for
the missing money, which was a little over a dollar, Ratan Kumar, a
senior police officer said from Dhanbad.
"The order to strip and search the girls was not fair,'' Officer
Kumar said.
Many students were crying and begged for mercy, police said.
On Tuesday, hundreds of people demonstrated in front of the school and
students boycotted classes demanding immediate action.
Five teachers and the school principal have gone on leave, police
said.
Although banned, corporal punishment is widely used to discipline
children in Indian schools.
Last September, a seven-year-old girl was made to strip naked and
stand on her desk by her teacher in a New Delhi school for not
completing her homework, while other students were asked to boo her.
Last year, a government study backed by the United Nations Children's
Fund said two-thirds of children in India are physically abused,
mostly at home and in schools
"If there's grass on the field, then play ball?"

Sure looks that way..
In MY day they made you strip naked on the playground, and then tied you to
a tree. Kids these days have it SO easy!
