The Langerhouz police took a school principal into custody for “cheating” students by not distributing hall-tickets to them for the CBSE Class X examinations which commenced on March 1.
Tension prevailed at the school when a number of parents, students and student organisations’ representatives squatted near the school and staged a dharna demanding that hall-tickets be given to all examinees. The CBSE Board did not dispatch hall-tickets to the students of Foundation International School, near Pillar No.67, at Padmanabhanagar in Langurhouz police limits since the school is being run without recognition.
Langerhouz police inspector NB Ratnam said the examinations began on March 1 but the school management failed to provide hall-tickets to 11 students. “We took principal Abdul Rauf into custody and questioned him. He promised the agitated parents to provide hall-tickets to the students concerned in two days. Since the examiaations have already begun, giving hall-tickets late would not serve the purpose,’’ he said.
Student Federation of India state general secretary P Laxamaiah and AP Balala Hakkula Sangham president Achyuth Rao demanded stern police action against the school management.
