Expelled student ends life

It's sacrilegious the manner in which the education system functions. Is it justifiable that we use outmoded means of punishment on youngsters when the world has moved towards a more humane and rehabilitative approach on the issue?

The victim's parents alleged that their son, Mayur Karande, had been depressed after his college principal rusticated him. The college, though, said that the student had only issued a showcause notice to the parents of 40 students who had allegedly submitted forged mark sheets and that the victim was one of them. Mayur, a Badlapur resident, studied S S T College in Ulhasnagar. His father Baban Karande said, "After receiving the showcause notice, we met the principal to ask him about the exact reason. But he refused to speak further on the issue and told me that my son had been rusticated." Baban said, "On Saturday, my son left home at 7 pm saying that he was going to meet his friends who also had received the notice and that they had planned a strike in the college. But he never returned. The next day, on Sunday morning, we received a call from the Kalyan GRP police that his body had been found near Badlapur station on the railway tracks." J C Purswami, principal of the college, said, "I had not said anything about rustication as we had only issued showcause notices to parents to find out the real culprits who had prepared the forged mark sheetsFollowing the fraudulent act, as per university norms, we issued showcause notices to seek information." The Kalyan GRP registered an accidental death report. Do you like this story? Post a Comment Follow this topic
