Edu Secy calls for FIR; DEO forms inquiry panel in thrashing incident

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, August 10

As Education Secretary BL Sharma has called for an FIR in the case of a scuffle between two teachers and relatives of a Class XI student of Government Senior Secondary School (GSSS), Sector 45, District Education Officer (DEO) Anujit Kaur has marked an inquiry, under a Deputy DEO, in the case on Friday.

The scuffle had taken place on Thursday. “Law will take its own course. The administration is in support of the teachers. Had the students not intervened, the teacher would have suffered grievous injuries. There is no space for compromise. The police have initiated an inquiry and action will be taken against the offenders,” said Sharma.

Sources said relatives of the student entered the school premises, claiming that they had been called to the school. They reached the class, entered into arguments and allegedly misbehaved with Hindi teacher Rishi Kumar. They allegedly beat up the teacher with a helmet and when a woman teacher tried to intervene, she was also beaten up. Both parties were taken to the Burail police post, where a compromise was reached.

Rishi Kumar couldn’t be contacted.
