The former warden has been suspended, while the services of the cook were terminated, she said, adding that the current warden has also been suspended for irregularities.

Tripathi, who probed the incident, said the action was taken after a probe committee recorded statements of the girls living in the hostel.

District collector Mayank Agrawal had constituted a probe committee following the complaint by parents of the students living in the hostel.

Meanwhile, Patharia's BSP MLA Rambai Parihar on Monday inspected the hostel and demanded a probe into the irregularities, following which the collector constituted a three-member committee.

The collector also ordered an inspection and investigation of all the hostels in the district.
