Disabled child in Bhubaneshwar assaulted by teachers, quits school. No action taken against school
In a shocking incident, a disabled student in class 8 at a school in Jharsuguda, Bhubaneswar, was assaulted and tortured by her teachers.
The District Differently-Abled Organization (DDAO) asked the District Collector to remove the teachers from the school. Yet, no action has been taken by authorities until now. The incident happened at the Talpatia Nodal High School in Jharsguda.
DDAO members say they are going to protest against the insensitive attitude of district officials towards people with disabilities. Meanwhile, the girl has stopped going to school. School authorities have not made any effort to call her back either.
The District Child Protection Officer (DCPO) has asked for a report in this matter. The DDAO says it is trying to convince the child to come back to the school and continue with her education.
Pressure is also being brought on the District Collector to take strict action against the accused.
