Viswa-Bharati row: Warden gets bail, court censures police

Kolkata: The case of a Class 5 student being allegedly made to drink her own urine at a school in West Bengal's Viswa-Bharati, founded by Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore, took a curious turn Monday with the warden and the parents being arrested but later released on bail.

Viswa-Bharati row: Warden gets bail, court censures police

The court, however, while granting bail to all the accused, condemned the incident and censured the police for booking the warden under bailable offences.

The court also ordered Patha Bhavan school warden Uma Poddar, who was held following complaints that she had forced the victim to drink her own urine after she wet the bed, to undertake the expenses for the student's treatment as she has been sick since the incident.

In a case of allegations and counter-allegations, the victim's parents were also arrested after the university complained they had stormed the premises and jeopardised the security of the students of the Karabi Hostel where the incident reportedly took place.

The three were produced before Birbhum's additional district judge Piyush Ghosh in Bolpur, the nearest town to Santiniketan which houses the Viswa-Bharati campus, and released on bail.
