(CNN)Thirty Indian girls are recovering at a government-run boarding school in the country’s eastern Bihar state after they were beat up by a group of teenage boys — and their parents — on Sunday.
The girls, aged 11 to 16, were playing inside the school compound in Bihar’s Supaul district when the group of boys showed up and wrote “lewd messages” on the school’s wall.
The girls first addressed the boys’ messages in a “heated argument” that eventually turned physical, according to Mrityunjay Kumar Chaudhary, Superintendent of Police. The girls initially “overpowered” the boys, so they ran away, only to return with adult reinforcements.
