Teacher suspended

Staff Correspondent

MYSORE: A faculty member of Sadvidya High School was suspended on Tuesday on the charge of assaulting a student.

The teacher, Ganesh, was suspended following a demand made by members of the Nava Karnataka Yuvaka Sangha, who barged into the office of the school and raised the issue with the management. Tension prevailed for a while as a verbal altercation ensued between the school management and the sangha, which came to the educational institution in support of the family of Rakesh, a 10th standard student, who was allegedly assaulted by the teacher.

The members of the sangha and the student's family members demanded that the teacher be dismissed from service. They had a bitter argument with the school headmaster, Mohan, who insisted that a fact-finding committee had been set up to look into the incident, and that action will be taken after ascertaining the facts.

The decision to suspend the teacher was taken after the secretary to the institution, Arkanath, failed to prevail upon the agitating members to wait till the outcome of the inquiry. It was later decided to suspend the teacher in question till the inquiry is completed.
