According to Indian Times, the parents were shocked and clueless until they found her suicide letter where she asked why her teacher complained about her like that.
According to the letter, her friends pointed out that her bench and uniform had menstrual blood stains.
In an Embarrassed state, she approached the teacher and asked for permission to go to the restroom but instead she was shamed and shouted at for not knowing how to place a pad properly.
The teacher then took her to see the principal, who allegedly scolded her as well.
Although the incident sparked protests from the parents of the pupil and members of the public, there have been no arrests yet as the issue is been investigated by the police.
“I don’t know what to say. Until now you didn’t hear any complaint about me but why did the teacher complain about me like this?”, she asked in her suicide note.
