The Father of a Class V student of Sardar Dastur Boy’s School has complained against the principal of Sardar Dastur Hoshang Boys School, alleging that the school has been targeting his child and harassing him for no reason. But the school said the child has some behavioral and disciplinary problems for which he has been given several warnings.
Javed Mulla on Saturday submitted an application to Bund Garden Police station, saying, “The school management has been targeting my child from Day 1. They accused my 11-year-old son of ragging his classmates. Last week, the principal called my wife and forcibly made her sign a letter that in case there is another complaint against the child, he will be rusticated.”
No official complaint has been lodged yet. However, principal Lily Patel refused to accept any allegations. “The child has shown disciplinary problems from the very beginning. He is known to have shown erratic behaviour in class. Recently, he pulled down the pants of another student. Our counsellor has been trying to help the child. But the father is not ready to accept that his child needs therapy,” said Patel. Counsellor Vaishali Pilimoria said, “The boy has disciplinary problems.”
