In Uttar Pradesh’s Bijnor district, a student shot his school principal after he was expelled. The principal, Sanjeev Kumar had expelled Deepaanshu, a class 10th student of Shri Sai Inter college for his violent behaviour according to The Indian Express.
Expelled for his violent behaviour
According to the police, Deepanshu aged 17, who comes from Narawali Village in Syohara, took admission in Shri Sai Inter college of Rooppur 15 days ago, because of the violent behaviour he often uses to get into brawls with fellow students. Earlier he was studying in Priyanka school but got rusticated from there as well after he failed in class 10th board exams. He was notorious for his violent behaviour in the school, as reported by The Times of India.
On August 25, Deepanshu got into a fight with his fellow classmates and thrashed one student after which the principal rusticated him from school. On Wednesday, August 29 he went to school with his mother to request for readmission, but the principal denied. Later he went again after dropping his mother at home and shot at principal with a country-made gun. The principal escaped the severe bullet injuries as it just touched his shoulder as he ducked in time.
The principal has said, “He has violent behaviour. He had thrashed some students after we had taken his admission here. I had warned him several times, but my warning and advice had not fallen on his deaf ears. He did not agree to change his behaviour. And he was spoiling the peaceful and disciplined environment of the school. After consulting with management, I had expelled him and informed his family members. He had come with his mother on Wednesday. But we refused his mother not to change my decision. This enraged him. He left school around 11:15 am and again returned alone and aimed the gun at me and opened fire. Fortunately, I dodged and escaped. However, I received bullet injuries on my shoulder.”
He further stated that complaint had been filed against the boy under section 307 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Police are searching for the student who is on the run since this incident happened. “I thought he had come to collect his Transfer Certificate from me, but he shot at my face. I dodged the bullet in time, so my life is saved,” he added, as reported by NDTV.
Violence by the students on rising
Of lately, the violence by the students is on the rise. In a similar incident, previously this year, a class 12 student shot his principal in a private school in Haryana. In March, an assistant professor was shot dead allegedly by his student.
The Logical Indian take
This kind of violent behaviour on the student’s part shows how intolerant and aggressive the young generation has become. They lack proper nourishment and guidance which results in the extreme outburst of emotions. Efforts should be made to make the teacher-student relationship more cordial and friendly. Teachers along with the parents should build an understanding and trust with the students so that they can open up to them about their problems and issues.
