On January 29, 2014, at 2,30 pm, Jagadish Higher Secondary School in the village of Jagadishpur, within the jurisdiction of the police station of Mandirbazar in the district of South 24 Paraganas, remained witness to any uncanny development or clashes between two groups of students following attempts to taunt a girl student from a nearby school. It has been learnt, Rani Guchait (name changed), student of Class X at Saradasuri Girls’ School within the same police station’s jurisdiction, went to Jagadish Higher Secondary School to participate in sports.
While sports were going on, she was targeted by two youths namely Manirul Islam (name changed and student of Class XII at Jagadish Higher Secondary School) and his friend Javed (name changed and nonstudent) who went on hurling slangs at her. They also tried to hassle her. Even if there were others also, none dared to protest as Manirul is known as a rowdy in the area. But Monotosh Mandal (name changed and student of Class XII at Jagadish Higher Secondary School) and his friend Biplab Majhi (name changed and also student at Jagadish Higher Secondary School) came forward, tried to dissuade both Manirul and Javed from behaving nastily. The verbal confrontation changed into a wild combats soon and finally Monotosh and Biplab overpowered Manirul along with Javed. Both of them had no option save for retreat but Manirul was found to warn both Biplab and Monotosh of dire consequences.
