An eight-year-old school girl forced to stand in the chilling cold during Republic Day celebrations for not wearing a sweater with the school logo suffered vertigo fell down from stairs and fractured her hands.

Identified as Tanisha Kabra, the girl is a sixth standard student of the SKS International School.

"When I reached school on Monday, I was asked to remove my sweater on the ground that it did not have the school logo on it," Tanisha told reporters in Indore on Monday.

She was asked to stand in the chilling cold for her "mistake", the girl said. Later, Tanisha fell down while climbing the stairs, due to a sudden vertigo because of the cold and ended up fracturing her hand.

All efforts to contact school authorities about the issue proved to be futile. Meanwhile, District Education Officer Sanjay Goyal said that he came to know about the incident through the media and added that strict action would be taken after a probe.
