Paradip, Dec 29 (LocalWire) District Education Officer (DEO) Prativa Manjari Das on Saturday suspended mathematics teacher of NAC High School Paradip Sudhanshu Prasad Behera for allegedly caning and beating students.
Sources said Behera used to allegedly cane and beat students if they did not complete their homework or fail to give answers to his questions in the class room.
Behera used to cane students as many times as was the particular student’s role number. For example, he allegedly caned Devaki Mandal 43 times as her role number was 43.
She reportedly sustained injuries on hands and legs.
Mandal’s father and other guardians submitted a written complaint against the teacher to the DEO.
Acting on their complaint, DEO Das directed Chatua High School headmistress Sukanti Behera to conduct an inquiry and submit a report.
“During inquiry, it was found that allegations by the students are true. Hence the teacher has been suspended from his duty for violation of Right of Education Act,” said Das.
