Snakebite school girl’s death: CM promises to take action against those found responsible
Pinarayi Vijayan, Chief Minister on Thursday promised stern action against officials who neglected their responsibilities. Condoling the death of Shehla Sherin, he termed it a serious issue. He said “teachers are supposed to teach students how to respond to a situation like this. But we came to know that some of the teachers in the school refused to take the child to hospital on time despite the demands from students.”
For now, C Raveendranath Education Minister directed the Director of General Education to submit a report after conducting a detailed inquiry into the incident. He will call on Shehla’s parents on Saturday. The minister also directed the department to carry out maintenance work in the school building to prevent such incidents in the future.
