Kolkata: Education minister Partha Chatterjee Monday said the violence in North Dinajpur district in which two students were killed was not the handiwork of school children but “done by outsiders in an organised manner”. Mr Chatterjee said the government will get everything related to Thursday's violence at the Darivit High School at Islampur probed.
“We want normalcy to be restored. But the way the furniture and equipment inside the Darivisit High school building got smashed on that day, this can't be the handiwork of school children,” he said in reply to a question.
“This must have been done by outsiders in an organised manner,” Mr Chatterjee said. Reiterating the death of two students was tragic, the minister said, “We will get everything related to the incident probed and take strict action accordingly. None will be spared.”
About the meeting with DIs, he said, every district inspector of schools should immediately inform the concerned district magistrate and commissioner of school education about any emergent situation in any school under the DI’s jurisdiction from now on.
