“She (warden) carries a perfume-like liquid with her and keeps spraying it on certain girls. She also whispers, pretending to talk to a girl that doesn’t exist. She pulls our clothes and at times even arms and legs, but we do not budge or open our eyes,” a student told a news channel. The school houses 100 students, two teachers and a warden.
