Chitranjan Kumar, Headmaster of GNM High School in Katrasgarh, Dhanbad, was issued a show-cause notice from education department for allegedly asking students to beg for funds. The school was damaged during last monsoon and the students hit the streets on 7th September to beg and raise the funds for repair. District Education Officer Madhuri Kumari said Chitranjan’s actions were “politically motivated”.
Chitranjan Kumar denied issuing any such instructions to the students and claimed the program was planned by students and their parents after school hours. The show-cause letter asked if Chitranjan had already asked for funds from Education Department. Chitranjan said that the dire condition of the school may have motivated the students to take such an action.
