One of the girls reportedly fainted after being shocked. The school administration took her to a neighbouring hospital, where she was treated and later released. Uttar Pradesh: Woman Found Dead in Her House, Police Suspect Husband of Giving Her Electric Shocks.

When her parents learned about the incident, they filed a police report at Kankipadu, which led to the arrest of the two accused, Marrivada Suribabu (30) and Vijaya Shekar (45), both residents of Kankipadu. According to the police, Suribabu and Shekar, two local electricians, were engaged on Thursday to repair electricity outlets at the school.

Suribabu purposefully connected the live wire to the steel benches in the classroom where the girl students' benches were located when they were replacing the sockets. As a consequence, the three girl students received electric shocks while seated on the benches made of steel.

According to reports, he performed the act repeatedly before ceasing only when the girls began to scream. After using the lavatory, one of the girls collapsed shortly after washing her face.
