Even as the Central schools are held high as torture and harassment-free institutions, a torture complaint lodged by a former student of the Balangir Kendriya Vidyalaya 2 against a teacher has worried many parents.
According to the petition submitted to the district Collector’s grievances cell by Jagyaseni Das, her daughter Saijyoti Das had been harassed and tortured by teacher Ashok Sarbhaga while she was studying in Class IX in 2014. Saijyoti had been in the school since 2004.
The teacher used to call her daughter and one of her friends to his quarter on holidays. He then would ask her daughter to sit at a computer and gossip with other one in adjacent room, Jagyaseni mentioned in complaint.
She also mentioned that the teacher would give a lot of articles to her classmate and ask her to keep them in Saijyoti’s room. “When I protested, the teacher became furious and threatened to spoil my daughter’s life. The gift of the teacher and mobile recording had been returned to the Principal,” the mother stated in the petition.
After this, the teacher instructed Saijyoti’s classmates not to talk to her. Due to metal torture meted out to my daughter by the teacher, she was forced to stay detained in her Class XI, and under compelling circumstances we brought her transfer certificate to get admission in the Government Women’s College, Bolangir, added the petitioner.
The teacher, Ashok Sarbhaga, denied the allegations. “I shall conduct an inquiry into the matter and take further steps,” said Balangir district Collector M Muthukumar.
