Chennai: The issue of the death of a student in a private school in Kallakurichi has taken a turn for the worse. Sunday, the students protested for justice as the mother was suspected in his death. Then suddenly the protest turned into a riot.
At that time, some people entered the school and set the school vehicles on fire. They also took the table and chairs away. After this, the police opened fire.
Meanwhile, in the video released by the secretary of the school, “They have nothing to do with the death of the student. We are fully cooperating with the police department. The student’s mother is the full reason for this riot,” he said.
Information spread that some people have deliberately provoked this riot. In this situation, Tamil Nadu Nursery, Primary and Matriculation Schools Association General Secretary Nandakumar had said yesterday that private schools will not operate from today across Tamil Nadu against the attack on private schools.
However, the Tamil Nadu government had warned that the concerned district primary education officers will take legal action if the private schools leave the holiday on their own.
Following this, 91 percent schools across Tamil Nadu were functioning today. A total of 987 schools are said to be non-functional today. In this case, School Education Minister Anbil Mahesh Poiyamozhi inspected the riot-affected private school. Then the administrators of the Private Schools Association met and talked with him.
Nandakumar has said that after a compromise was reached in this negotiation, private schools will function as usual from tomorrow across Tamil Nadu and withdraw the protest.
