HT Impact: School revokes expulsion of UP girl who took on molester

Shah also tendered apology.
DIOS Uday Prakash also confirmed that the development. “Yes, I have spoken to the principal over the issue. He has given a clarification in written,” he said.
The victim, a Class XI student of biology stream, said she was unaware of the development as she didn’t attend the college due to Sunday.
Student of Bapu Inter College, Kushinagar, the girl was going back home from school on Thursday when a 25-year-old youth intercepted her, held her hand and passed a lewd comment.
Reacting sharply, the girl beat him up with slippers before dialing 100 for help. The accused was booked under various IPC sections and sent to jail.
However, on Saturday, when the girl reached school she was called by principal who asked her to collect her transfer certificate.
The principal told the girl that her name was being struck off from the roll as she has caused harm to school’s reputation.
