At least 36 girls were hospitalised after an unruly mob barged into a residential girls school in India’s eastern state of Bihar and thrashed the students, officials said Sunday.

The incident took place Saturday evening in Triveniganj of Supaul district, about 267 km northeast of Patna, the capital city of Bihar.

“At least 30 schoolgirls were admitted in hospital here. They were thrashed by miscreants for allegedly resisting sexual advances,” sub-district magistrate Triveniganj told media.

“The accused will be arrested soon and strict action will be taken in this regard.”

Local media reports said some girls in self-defence thrashed a few boys who had sneaked inside the school premises during the day and allegedly misbehaved with the students.

The girls in the school are aged between 12 to 16 years.

“Following the incident in the evening boys returned with their parents and relatives and barged into the school. The mob surrounded the campus and targeted the frightened girls and their teachers,” a local media report said.

“Despite requests from the school principal, the mob beat up the students and teachers.”

The incident has evoked strong condemnation.  Meanwhile, police said they have formed teams to carry out raids to arrest the people involved in this incident.
