Indian schoolgirls beaten after protesting sexual harassment

Thirty-four Indian schoolgirls aged between 12 and 16 were taken to hospital after being beaten with sticks by a group of boys, along with the boys’ mothers and neighbours, who had harassed them earlier in the day. Ten people have been arrested. The girls suffered minor injuries and were released from hospital over the weekend.

The assault happened outside a government-run boarding school in the eastern state of Bihar, police told Reuters. The boys, aged between 12 and 16, entered a field near the school in the village of Darpakha, about 300 km from the state capital, Patna, where the girls were playing and shouted obscene comments. The boys left after the girls protested, only to return later with a group of around 20 people armed with sticks.
