‘Offenders in Shantipur College case will be punished’
The state government will take stringent action against the offenders of Nadia’s Shantipur College where some miscreants pointed gun at a professor in the teachers’ room. One person has been arrested and two others were detained in the case.
State education minister Partha Chatterjee received written complaints from the teacher-in-charge of the college that some miscreants had suddenly entered into the teachers’ room while a meeting was going on.
The miscreants then started abusing the teacher-in-charge Chandrima Bhattacharya and threatened her to stop the meeting right there. They demanded the teacher-in-charge to be tight-lipped in the general body meeting which is scheduled to take place after some days.
But before the teacher-in-charge could say something to those miscreants, they pointed a gun at another teacher.
Brandishing the gun, which was pointed to the forehead of Mathametics professor Amarjit Kundu, the miscreants threatened to shoot him while the teacher tried to save Bhattacharya.
The state Education minister clearly said no offenders would be spared if the offence is proved. “I have asked for the video footage CD of the incident. I have also inquired about the matter from Nadia district president of Trinamool Congress,” said Chatterjee.
However, the minister has also mentioned that there is a case against the teacher-in-charge too in the court. All those matters will be looked into.
“Some sporadic incidents have happened in educational institutions. But as per the instruction of Mamata Banerjee, we have taken stringent action in those cases,” Chatterjee said.
Meanwhile, the teacher-in-charge has expressed her concern to the state government. “The general body meeting will definitely take place. I will not sit idle there and convey my version despite being threaten,” said Bhattacharya.
