Students of the St Mary’s Convent School were allegedly punished and humiliated and made to stand in the sun as punishment for wearing rakhi and mehndi to the school. School authorities forced these girls to wash off the mehndi, which led to bleeding from their hands.
A social media user later shared a picture of the school teachers, including the nuns, and questioned if the school doesn’t permit religious symbols then why were teachers allowed to wear a ‘cross’ to the class.

Some reports even said that the school authorities even forced a girl to rub her hands on a stone to clear the mehndi.
