Collector orders probe into academy-parents' tiff

Written by: Staff

Vijayawada, Feb 26 (UNI) Taking note of the standoff between the management of a private academy here and parents of the institute's student who died under mysterious circumstances on December 26 last year, Krishna District Collector Navin Mittal ordered an administrative inquiry into the controversy.

Talking to UNI here today, Mr Mittal said he has asked the Education Department officials to submit a report in a week's time, based on which further course of action on the issue would be decided. The police inquiry will be complete by then, he added.

The police has registered cases against the institute's officials on charges of assaulting the student's father Nagaraju and his relatives.

Similary, cases were filed against Nagaraju and his relatives following a complaint from the management that they ransacked the premises and assaulted the academy staff.

After hearing the arguments yesterday, First Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate P Prabhakar granted bail to Nagaraju and his relatives who were remanded after the incident. He also granted bail to nine members of the institute.

The Bezwada Bar Association has decided to send a detailed report on the humiliation meted out to the parents and relatives of the student by the institute management to Andhra Pradesh Chief Justice with a request to treat it as a writ petition.

A copy of the report would also be sent to the State Human Rights Commission. The association alleged the police acted in a bias fashion.

All India Youth Federation Secretary G V Raju said the federation was planning to launch state-wide agitation demanding justice to the parents.
