Accused security guard's daughter to sit for Madhyamik with writer
Kolkata: Neha Singh, a resident of Alipore will be appearing for the Madhyamik examination that begins from Monday. But what separates her from the other examinees is the fact that she will be appearing for the examination with a writer though she is able to write on her own.
Neha had bore the brunt of the wrath of the guardians at Alipore Multipurpose Girl's School and was assaulted after allegations of molestation surfaced against his father Rameshwar Singh, who was the night security guard of the school. She has an injury in her right hand.
The accused was arrested by the police on the basis of the complaint by some guardians regarding the misbehavior of Singh. However, even after that, a section of the agitating guardians barged into the quarter of Singh located at the back side of the school premises and beat up her wife. Neha too was not spared when she tried to rescue her mother from being assaulted.
"We were impressed with the mental strength of Neha who is bent upon appearing for the examination. Her father is presently in custody while her mother has fallen sick after the Thursday incident.
She has an injury on her right hand and is not being able to write. We had sought permission from the Secondary Board so that we can arrange for a writer for her. The permission has been granted and she will take the help of a writer," said Sougata Basu, general secretary of West Bengal Government School Teachers' Association (WBGSTA)
It may be mentioned that Neha's school teachers' have also come forward in extending help in this regard. The WBGSTA has also arranged for some of the books that got torn when the agitating guardians barged into Singh's residence.
It may be mentioned that a representative from WBGSTA will accompany Neha to her examination centre at Tollygunge Adarsha High School on Monday." We will continue to stand by her during the period of examination,' Basu said.
