Varanasi : The headmaster of a primary school in Mirzapur was suspended for allegedly beating students and preventing them from folding hand and singing Vande Matram during prayers.
According to reports, basic shiksha adhikari of Mirzapur Pravin Kumar Tiwari on Friday suspended the head master of the primary school at Jafarkhani village in Jamalpur block Shahid Faisal after preliminary investigations.
“We have been receiving complaints from parents of students that the headmaster did not allow students to sing Saraswati Vandana with folded hands or say Vande Mataram and Bharat Mata ki Jai. He also allegedly beat students when they did not obey his command,” the BSA said.
During investigation, the headmaster said that he used to stop children a year back.
“It is a serious matter that may also lead to communal tension, so the headmaster has been suspended. Further inquiry has begun which will be completed in next 15 days,” Tiwari said.
