A 10th Class student was made to stand outside his hostel room for a whole night by the principal of Chinna Jeeyar Educational Trust at Muchintal in Shamshabad. His parents asked for a reason to the principal, he said that the boy had stolen Rs 100 and it was a punishment. The parents have given the complaint to the Shamshabad police.
This Trust is a residential school and students stay in the hostel. The boy’s father Premnandanchari said that “School Principal Govardhan made my son stand in front of his room for a whole night, blaming him for stealing money,”
Following a complaint from child rights activists and the boy’s parents, Shamshabad police have started an inquiry.
Child rights activists say they have got information about another student named Kiran Kumar who was beaten up by the principal for calling a teacher “nuvvu” (you). “The kid is from Mahbubnagar, and it is very natural in their language to say nuvvu (you) instead of meeru (yourself). This angered the principal, who beat up the kid. We have given a complaint against the principal with the Child Rights Commission,” said activist Achyuth Rao.
