A video of girl students purportedly screaming, crying and rolling on the floor at a government school in Raikholi area of Bageshwar district is doing rounds on social media.

A team of administration and doctors visited the school after the incident left the education department in a tizzy.

Incidents of mass hysteria have previously been reported in government schools in neighbouring districts such as Almora, Pithoragarh, and Chamoli.

Vimla Devi, head teacher of the school, told News18 that the sudden change in behaviour of students was first reported on Tuesday. A similar incident took place again on Thursday.

"They were crying, shouting, shivering, and even trying to bang heads for no reason. We called parents, they summoned a local priest and this is how the situation came under control," Vimla Devi said.
