WTF KOLKATA: A youngster walked into an all-girls school in central Kolkata unchallenged on Monday morning, stripped naked and made indecent gestures at students in a classroom, and escaped without any of the staff attempting to stop him. Many girls fainted and others are still traumatized. The authorities did not even bother to lodge a complaint with police. The incident has put the scanner on security in Kolkata’s schools. Sources said it was around noon, just when the class bell was supposed to go off that the youth entered the English-medium school near Hedua. Security guards could not recall when he walked in or what excuse he gave for entering a girls’ school. He walked through the corridors unchallenged until he found his target — the Class X room on the second floor. In front of the horrified teacher and students, he took off his clothes unhurriedly, stripped completely nude and made indecent gestures at the girls. Some girls apparently passed out while a few vomited. Not many outside the classroom were even aware of the girls’ plight. Before anyone could raise an alarm, the youth grabbed his clothes, put on his trousers and ran. The girls returned home and complained to their parents. Some are still complaining of dizziness. A group of parents turned up at the school on Tuesday and demanded an explanation from principal Rita Chatterjee. An apologetic Chatterjee told them that she would tighten security. A security guard who was on duty on Monday maintained the youth had merely taken off his shirt. “It is not possible to keep tabs on everybody entering the school. We weren’t even aware that something like this had happened till the girls started screaming. Not even teachers were aware of the incident.” While school authorities try to pass it off as the act of a deranged man, psychologists and social scientists believe it was an act of perversion by an exhibitionist. Some believe that the man may have entered into a bet with his friends. “A mentally deranged person will not take off his clothes after entering a classroom. This is a clear case of exhibitionism by a pervert. Such people normally don’t have a partner. Such acts are outbursts of increasing frustration and stress,” said psychologist Paromita Mitra Bhowmick. It is kinda hilarious (a bit) but seriously, the schools must be forced to increase security and double check people going in and out. At this rate even terrorists will one day just enter and take a school hostage without anyone even trying to stop them.
