The Hush Post: Irate parents held a protest demonstration outside Kamala Girls School in Kolkata on Monday after the institution officials levelled allegations of lesbianism against 10 students.
The guardians blamed the management of the south Kolkata school of forcibly obtaining written admission of the students that they were involed in lesbian acts. The parents caused a noisy demonstration at the school and got engaged in verbal spat with the school headmistress, the NDTV reported on Tuesday.
The headmistress said after a few students complained against the girls, they confronted the accused who later admitted to it, NDTV reported.
“Some students had complained against 10 students of indulging in such behaviour. We called those students and they admitted it. Considering the sensitive nature of the issue, I asked them to admit it in writing. I have got written admissions from all 10 students,” the acting headmistress told news agency IANS.
“Today we called the guardians to apprise them of the issue. Our aim was to discuss the matter with them so that we can bring these girls on the right course through efforts both at home and in school,” she told the news agency.
The enraged guardians, however, rubbished the allegations of the headmistress. “If two persons hold hands, or put an arm on each other shoulders, that does not mean they are lesbians,” a guardian reportedly told the news agency.
