Eight Mumbai schoolchildren have been suspended from a “top-ranked IB [International Board] school” for talking about “raping” their fellow female classmates.

The boys, all about 13 or 14 year olds, addressed the girls as “trash”. Apart from chats about “raping” their classmates, the chats were also peppered with words such as “banging”, as well as homophobic slurs, said a Mumbai daily report.

The incident surfaced when parents of two girls complained to the school administration after they came across the conversations, the newspaper reported. The story also added that some girls were even afraid to go to school.

One parent who spoke to the daily said some students in the chat were in "leadership positions".

Twitter users commenting on the story were aghast.

"What’s going on in our society!" wrote actor Ronit Roy. "As a father I’m scared for both my son and daughter!"

"This is terrible news," said another user.

"This is where the problem of violence against women has to be nipped."
