"The PT teacher caught me on my way to my class on the first floor". The girl told the teacher she had given the uniform for being washed. Before the girl could even answer, the staff member dragged her forcefully to the boys' washroom and told her to stand inside for some time as a punishment for not wearing the uniform. "I had written a note in her diary that her uniform was washed and didn't dry completely so she could not wear it, but the Physical Education teacher who pulled her up refused to listen and shouted at her and asked her to stand at the washroom", the father was quoted as saying by ANI.

"Some students from Class 4 saw me in the washroom and laughed at me". "She threw me inside the boy's restroom". However, torturing a child and scaring her to the extent that she refuses to go to school is something we do not understand.

The incident has attracted strong reactions from people, including child rights activists. After the incident came into limelight, child rights activists demanded a case against the teacher and also intends to write to the Human Rights Commission. The victim is a class V student and following the incident, the girl's parents have recorded a video statement of her.

Telangana IT minister KT Rama Rao, son of chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, also tweeted about the incident after a video clipping of the girl narrating the episode went viral on social media in Hyderabad. "How can they act in such an insensitive manner", Mr Rao says.

Her father has approached a child rights NGO, which has made a decision to file a complaint against the school authorities. Rao said confining a girl to the boys' washroom was nothing short of sexual abuse, and that he has asked for action against the staff and the school management.
