Girl students asked to do 100 sit-ups; six faint

Jamshedpur: Six girl students of a school fainted and were admitted to the Tata Main Hospital here on Tuesday after a teacher asked them to do 100 sit-ups.

The ninth standard students of Beldih Church School were asked to do the sit-ups by a lady teacher for causing din during a teachers' meeting, the police said. Six girls fainted and had to be rushed to the Tata Main Hospital by the school management and the parents.

Officer in charge of the Bistupur station Inspector Pramod Kumar Singh said no complaint was received yet. But the parents of the hospitalised girls claimed they had registered a written complaint against the teacher, and that she was suspended immediately. The parents also alleged that the girls were hit on their legs with a stick.

A teacher, who was among others who took the girls to hospital, denied the charge, but admitted that they were asked to do sit-ups 100 times.

The school authorities did not confirm whether any action was initiated against the teacher, but said they were looking into the incident.
