Not only did this become the talk of the town, a lot of folks found the incident obnoxious and worthy of protest. Some were even found to describe the event as “enough is enough.” Following the event, the headmaster remained absent for the following three days while Aparna continued to go to school. Then on 9th September while the school started as usual, Obadiur Rahman asked Aparna Singha to visit his chamber again apparently to settle the crisis. However, during the interaction he grabbed one hand of Aprana and reportedly tried to molest her again. Somehow, she managed to save herself and ran to the teacher’s room. The latest set of assault enraged all and then a large number of students barged into the headmaster’s chamber to protest the harassment of Ms Singha. A heated argument ensued and once the headmaster refused to listen to them, students in throngs attacked him.
Obadiur Rahman was manhandled, beaten heavily leading to a pandemonium and the school was then closed. Police officials and other responsible persons of local administration promptly visited the school. Ramkrishna Mandal, secretary of
, also visited
the spot and soon got engaged with police and administrative officials to find a
solution and normalize things. Following the incident, the injured headmaster
was sent to the local primary health centre and then referred to the district
hospital for treatment. Baisnabnagar
Nevertheless, both Prasenjit Das, president of Trinamool Congress of Malda District, and Kalyan Mukherjee, Superintendent of Police – Malda, were found to be more interested to conceal offense of the school headmaster. While Prasenjit was found to reprimand students stating that they had a predetermined strategy to create lawlessness in the school and in its environs, SP was found to blame outsiders to create chaos.
