A Government Higher Secondary Principal was allegedly manhandled by some miscreants for not removing the foundation stone inscribed in the newly constructed building.
Principal Government Higher Secondary School Kharpora Anantnag said that the department recently directed him to shift the institute to the newly constructed building located near the hillock in Kharpora area. “There is a foundation stone adorned in the premises of the Higher Secondary carrying the name of the then Education Minister Pirzada Muhammad Sayeed. Some People’s Democratic Party workers recently visited my office and instructed me to remove this foundation stone. When I expressed my inability and informed them only Department can do it, they not only manhandled me but also threatened me of dire consequences,” Principal Fayaz Ahmed Attar said.
“These PDP workers headed by local Auqaf president frequently visit my office. They not only shower abusive remarks but also threaten me. I am feeling insecure and have already brought the matter into the notice of Zonal Education Officer,” he said.
Chief Education Officer Anantnag said that he will look into the matter.
