Students demand teachers for their school in Srinagar

Thursday March 22, 2012 02:09:47 PM, IANS

Srinagar: Students of a government higher secondary school here came together Thursday for a demand of a different kind - teachers for their school.

Dozens of students gathered at the Press Enclave in Residency Road area here shouting slogans against the authorities whom they blamed for ignoring their education.

"Our school principal retired last month and since then nobody has been heading our school. We come to school in the morning and are told to go home at 12 noon," said Zameer, 15, one of the protesting students.

"We have no teachers to teach us commerce and many other subjects. School teachers have expressed their helplessness saying it is in the hands of the director school education," Zameer added.

Police intervened to disperse the protesting students using batons as no senior official of the school education department came to pacify the students or address their genuine grievance.

"We have intervened to maintain law and order as an assembly of five or more people is deemed as unlawful under section 144 of the CrPc (The Code of Criminal Procedure) which is in force in the city," said a police officer.

"It is wrong to use batons even when students protest demanding teachers for their school," said Bashir Ahmad War, a retired veterinarian here.
