The school is run by the conservative Gujarati Samaj
Three high school girls were suspended from an Indore
school after they were found drinking vodka in class.
The 17-year-old girls of KB Patel Gujarati Kanya Uchchatar Madhyamik Vidhyalaya
were found drinking from water bottles last Friday, 17th June 2011. They were found
out after one of the girls puked after drinking vodka.
Pankaj Sanghvi, a trustee of the school, said, One of the girls had brought vodka
in a transparent water bottle. Two of them drank and then asked the third student
to try. It's likely the third girl was consuming alcohol for the first time. She
vomited in class.
Seeing her unwell, the teacher rushed to her and realised she was sick. The girls
had an unsteady gait and their speech was slurred. The teacher then found the bottle
which reeked of alcohol.
After they were found out, one of the girls threatened the teacher with dire consequences.
Sanghvi said, the girls made a mistake. We called their parents and the girls were
suspended immediately. They come from influential and rich families. The school
is run by the conservative Gujarati Samaj.
A member of the school management said one of the girls stole the vodka from her
grandfather's bar. She chose vodka because it is clear and transparent as water
and wouldn't be detected.
