Bibehara School Punishes Students in its ‘Own Way’



Students! Next time you are late, beware you are put to task: ‘grazing’.

A similar incident happened in South Kashmir’s Bijbehera senior secondary school when some students arrived late in the school campus Wednsday morning. The students were allegedly asked to cut grass of the school lawns.

According to the students they were only late by some fifteen minutes or so but were punished by the newly appointed principal, Aijaz Ahmad Khan.

“We made to run for over half an hour without any break and then cut grass in the lawns,” one of the students said.

When one of the beleagured students objected, he was ‘threatened of strict action’.

Forced, the students resorted to sloagneering, “we want justice”. “And in the face saving move, students were allowed to move in to their classes,” one of the students said.

When contacted,  Aijaz Ahmad Khan said, “he was at liberty to run the school in whichever way he wanted to.”

“I don’t think it’s wrong,” he asserted justifying the punishment meted to students.

On the other side, the staff of the school too alleged ‘misbehaviour’ of principal towards them.

“We are being asked to spy on the students,” one of the female non-teaching staff said.

“It’s humiliating,” she added. “He threatens us to make us sit at the school gate.”

When the matter reached directorate of education, the officials said that the matter is serious. “If such a thing has happened its unacceptable,” Abid Shah, Joint Director Education said. “I will definitely look into the matter soon.”
