TMC men ransack school office in Durgapur

St. Michael's School B-Zone Branch Durgapur

An alleged incident of ransacking the office of an English medium school in Durgapur yesterday (February 7) by supporters of Trinamool Congress forced the school management to suspend classes for an indefinite period. The incident has however not been reported to the police as the main accused is a local TMC leader.

The ICSE-affiliated St. Michael’s School, operating in Bidhannagar locality of Durgapur for several years, had floated a branch at the Tansen Locality of the Steel Township in April last year. The Tansen Unit of St. Michael’s School is meant for students of pre-primary to class VII. However the school presently has students up to class V.

According to Mr Ritrajit Das, vice-principal of St. Michael’s School of Steel Township branch, they had been forced to engage the wife of a local TMC leader under pressure. But she was creating trouble as she refused to shoulder any job she was offered. Yesterday, the lady’s husband and his aides allegedly stormed into the school’s office, ransacking the office, thrashing the staff and assaulting the office bearers.

The incident took everyone by surprise and created a sense of fear and insecurity among the teachers and staff of the school. After a meeting with the guardians, the school authority took the decision of suspending classes considering the security of students and teachers.

Informed sources revealed that trouble started after the wife of the local TMC leader appointed as an office staff was asked to do other odd jobs too by the vice principal.

TMC MLA and Durgapur Mayor Apurba Mukherjee could not be contacted for his reaction on the incident as Mr. Mukherjee was in Kolkata for voting of Rajya Sabha election yesterday.

  1. Learning is definitely an important phase of life; most of us wish to upgrade ourselves on technologies, cultures and other subjects. Writing first drafts could be fun in the event you commit on the bungee jump.

  2. Don't play with the lives of children and with their education no one should simply disturb the school without any valid reasons and simple things which can be solved by talking and discussing

  3. This is a good school. The principal, staffs and teachers are very nice and cordial. I have visited this school personally and know all the staff personally. There is no odd job when it comes for missionary service. The lady staff in question was asked to look after the play group children and pick and drop them before and after school along with a designated driver and school bus.

    These local hooligans are putting this school under constant pressure. These anti socials should be arrested immidiately.
