DUMKA, Sep. 1, 2022 (TBINN)
Reportedly, in a surprising incident, a Mathematics’ teacher and a clerk of a residential school in Jharkhand’s Dumka District were allegedly beaten by students after tying them to a tree for giving poor marks in examination.
The incident took place at a government run Scheduled Tribe Residential School under Gopikandar Police Station’s area of the district. As many as 11 students, out of 32, procured Grade DD (Double D), which is considered equivalent to fail, in the Class 9 examination, results of which were declared by Jharkhand Academic Council (J.A.C.) on Saturday, the police said.
As of yet, no F.I.R. has been lodged in the case, as school management did not give any written complaint about the incident. After verification of the incident, I asked the school authority to lodge a complaint but it refused saying that if might spoil the careers of the students, Gopikandar Police Station’s In-Charge Nityanand Bhokta told the Press .
The teacher was identified as Suman Kumar, while the clerk was Soneram Chaure, police said. They also did not give any written complaint to the police, Bhokta added.
