Kolkata: Two school teachers have been arrested in West Bengal's Birbhum district after a class 12 girl student was strip-searched by them on allegations of theft, a senior police official said.

The student was strip-searched by the teachers in order to find some antique coins which went missing from the school.

The girl student repeatedly pleaded innocence but the teachers paid no heed to her. The incident happened on Friday and a case was registered.

"Two teachers who were named in the FIR were arrested on Friday only," said Birbhum police Chief Rishikesh Meena.
