Fearing harassment, a group of female students of a government high school in Haryana's Rewari have been sitting on a hunger strike for five consecutive days, demanding upgradation of their school.
The girls said that they would be molested if they travel to a senior secondary school located in a different village for higher studies.
The district education authorities said that they would put the demand of the girls before the higher officials and would also seek Education minister's intervention.
The protesting girls said that they would not stop until the government accepted their demand.
