KAPILVASTU, Feb 22: A school in Kapilvastu district has been temporarily closed due to mass hysteria among the students. Nepal Adarsha Higher Secondary School based at Shivapur of Shivaraj Municipality-1 has been shut for two days as many students displayed symptoms such as fainting, restlessness, and screaming, according to Shivaraj Municipality education section chief, Dinesh Chaudhary.

School Principal Muktinath Pokhrel said students showed these symptoms during regular school hours. On Wednesday alone, over 10 girls showed these symptoms and the school sought the help of psychoanalysts to address the situation. 

After showing such symptoms for some time, the students get normalized. Some Time ago, the local Saraswoti Basic School also witnessed a similar situation. 

As doctors said, this is the case of mass hysteria and it will be normalized if students are separated by closing the school for a few days.
