Following the notification issued by the authorities of Christ King School, Chungtia announcing closure of the school from September 22, even after the issue relating to the corporal punishment meted out to a student by the headmaster was settled, the Chungtia Students’ Union (CSU) has urged the responsible authority to reopen the institution at the earliest. The CSU in a memorandum signed by its president, Kumzuk Kichu and general secretary, N. Asen Jamir has urged the principal of the school to look into the matter at the earliest as the career of more than 300 students who were studying in the institution was “on the verge of collapse.” The school authority was also asked to maintain smooth running of the classes, failing which, the CSU said it would be forced to take stronger steps in this connection. The students’ union in a separate statement said that the headmaster of the school, Selastin Raj awarded corporal punishment to a student of Class VII on September 16, which was totally prohibited under the provisions of the law. Strongly condemning the incident, the CSU also urged all student bodies and NGOs to raise their voices against the “injustice done.”
