District BSA had handed over the investigation of the case to Block Education Officer Himanshu Mishra after the video went viral on social media on Friday.
Negligence by the school principal and five teachers appeared in the report
In the block education officer’s investigation report, the school principal and five teachers have been found responsible for negligence. In fact, a video surfaced on social media last Friday. According to the video, first-grade student Aditya in Sukhpura Elementary School was locked inside the class itself, and school staff went home. In the video, the scene with Aditya making noise and breaking the lock and removing him is clearly visible. Aditya’s family said that when Aditya did not get home on Thursday, they started looking for him and reached the school. From there, Aditya, a student locked in the school, was pulled out by breaking the lock.
There was also a ban on the advance pay for five teachers
Relatives said that after receiving information that Aditya was in class, with the help of villagers, the lock broke and took the child out. It was told that Aditya had slept in the class itself and the school staff went home without locking the child without seeing the child. District BSA took strict steps toward this and suspended the school principal. Along with this, the advance increase of five teachers at the school – Afroz Ara, Priyanka Yadav, Shanti Gond, Meera Devi and Surendra Nath Singh has been banned.
