Students boycott classes after teachers clash

Staff Correspondent

DAVANGERE: Teachers at a government higher primary school in Doddabathi village in Davangere taluk indulged in a fistfight and slipper throwing on Tuesday.

Protesting against the incident, students stayed away from classes and resorted to a dharna outside the school while villagers locked the classrooms.

The two teachers, Thippamma and Kaushalya, were over 45 minutes late for school.

They got into an argument when they approached the Chairman of the School Development Committee and apologised for being late.

Though many others tried to pacify them, the teachers roughed up each other and threw their footwear at the other.

Deputy Director for Public Instruction Kemperaj Urs rushed to the school and assured villagers that he would take disciplinary action against the teachers.

Following the assurance, villagers opened the locks and children returned to their classes.

It has been reported that Mr. Urs has kept the two teachers under suspension and instituted an inquiry into the incident.
