From a Correspondent
JORHAT, April 27: Sensation prevailed in the Cinmora area of Jorhat on Wednesday after a student of the third standard of Kendriya Vidyalaya (KV) ONGC was allegedly mercilessly beaten by the class teacher identified as Saurav Gorr, a permanent teacher of the school, just after culmition of the morning assembly.
The minor student Krishanu Sailu Tanti, who is suspected to have received interl injuries, was later sent for a complete medical check-up to the Jorhat Medical College Hospital after his father Pronob Jyoti Tanti lodged an FIR against the teacher with the Jorhat police.
In the FIR, Pronob Jyoti Tanti stated, “My son Krishanu Sailu Tanti, aged about 8 years, is a student of class III of Kendriya Vidyalaya (ONGC) Cinmora. Today his class teacher Saurav Gorr without any reason assaulted him in his class as a result of which he sustained serious injuries in his face, ear, neck and back portion of his body. He even abused him with slang words. As a result of which my son is now suffering from both physical and mental trauma and under the above facts and circumstances, I would therefore request the police to enquire into the matter and take necessary legal action.”
Talking to The Sentinel, Pronob Jyoti Tanti said, “I am not against minimum punishment to children for their own betterment. I would have never wanted to malign the noble profession of teaching but if you see the marks on my son’s body only then would one realize how mercilessly he has been thrashed black and blue. He even abused him and I seriously doubt if the teacher is mentally fit to carry on teaching. Another teacher of the school first complained to Saurav Gorr against my son when he refused to stand with girls in the morning assembly. Later after the assembly, Saurav Gorr hit my son in front of the entire class.”
A Jorhat PS case no 811/2016 has been registered U/S 294/325 IPC and police have started enquiry into the allegations. The accused teacher informed The Sentinel, “I can’t exactly remember which student or his parents have lodged an FIR against me but as such I am not in a position to answer all your queries without permission from the Principal of our school.”
