As a mark of protest, scores of students from Sanik School Manasbal in Central Kashmir’s Ganderbal district fled from their hostel during the dead of night after the school authorities rusticated two students for their ‘bad’ conduct.
School sources told CNS that the peace and discipline of the school got disturbed after the two students from class 11th fought with each other over a personal matter. Both the students according to reports were rusticated from the school soon after the incident and were handed over to the parents with the directions that school is soon going to issue discharge certificates in their favor.
Sources said that scores of the class fellows of these two rusticated students tried to stage a protest against the school authorities, however, were stopped and admonished. However, these students fled from the hostel during the dead of night with the demand that they will not join the school till the rusticated students are not called back.
Admitting that students had fled from the hostel, Principal Sanik School Manasbal Gayasuddin told CNS that they have registered a report in police station Lar in this regard. He however said that most of the students have been traced and they have joined the School again. “We are looking into their demand and the decision in this regard will be taken within one or two days,” he said.
