Bhilwara— A cloud of tension engulfed in a Bhilwara village following a distressing incident at the government secondary school in Luhariya, situated within the Mandalgarh region. The shocking act involved two 12-year-old male students who allegedly mixed urine into a Class 8 girl's water bottle and left a love letter slip in her bag, bearing the words "I LOVE U." The unsettling event triggered widespread outrage and protests in the community, leading to heightened tensions between the villagers and the police on Monday afternoon.
The unfortunate event occurred during the school's lunchtime on Friday, when the victim, a 12-year-old girl, left her bag in the classroom. Upon her return, she noticed a foul smell emanating from her water bottle. Disturbed and suspicious, she discovered a love letter slip inside her bag, further adding to her distress.
The girl promptly reported the incident to the principal complaining against the two male students from her own class. However, when the school principal failed to take immediate action, the girl's family approached the Tehsildar and the in-charge of the Luhariya police station on Sunday. Nevertheless, due to Moharram, no immediate attention was given to the complaint, leading to the escalation of tensions.
As news about the incident spread through social media, the public's anger grew, resulting in the closure of markets in Luhariya. On Monday, when the police arrived at the school to address the issue with the principal, the situation intensified as villagers locked the school gate and began protesting. Villagers pelted stone at the homes of people belonging to specific community. They raised slogans demanding expulsion of the erring students. The situation took a drastic turn, prompting the police to resort to lathi charge to disperse the crowd and restore order.
The incident has heightened community tensions, with the victim's family and some villagers holding the two male students responsible for their actions. Allegedly, the love letter slip found in the girl's bag not only contained the words "I LOVE U" but also the names of the boys, corroborating her complaint against them.
While the victim has yet to officially file a complaint with the police, authorities have assured the villagers that they will take appropriate action against those involved in the stone-pelting incident. The Additional Superintendent of Police, Ghanashyam Sharma, is said to be in Luhariya village, leading additional police force to maintain law and order during this tense situation.
The incident ignited a wave of outrage and protests in Bhilwara. The community demands justice for the victim and swift action against the perpetrators. Authorities are working to resolve the issue and restore peace in the region as investigations continue into this appalling incident.
