Bhubaneswar: The Kalahandi district administration suspended Thuamul-Rampur block’s Sirimksa Residential School Headmaster Balakrushna Mohapatra on the charge of sexually assaulting a Class X girl student.
On the complaint of the victim, the District School Inspector conducted an inquiry and found Mohapatra guilty. Basing on the finding, the DI suspended him.
“Basing on the complaint, we conducted an inquiry and found the Headmaster guilty. His act is very condemnable. We first served a show-cause notice to him. As he couldn’t give a satisfactory reply, we suspended him. Further departmental action would be taken against him,” DI told the News7, a noted TV news channel of the State.
According to reports, the Headmaster has been serving in the school over five years despite the norms that a teacher is transferred within five years.
Locals have severely condemned the act. The Headmaster has been on the run, said reports.
