Madhya Pradesh school takes back expelled students after CM Kamal Nath steps in
The two girl students of a private school in Dhar district of Madhya Pradesh, who were expelled by the school management for complaining against alleged racial slur were enrolled back into the same school, said sources.
The two are expected to return to school on Wednesday.
The decision was conveyed to the two students and their family members by the school management on Tuesday evening after the intervention of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath.
The two girls were allegedly expelled because they were Nepalis. They had written to the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) seeking his intervention after the girls were allegedly expelled for complaining against racism.
The school principal, while justifying his expulsion decision, had said that the father of the two girls had physically assaulted a school teacher.
The two daughters had initially taken up the matter with the PMO after which district education officer Mangesh Vyas started an enquiry into the case.
We were hounded by being called Nepalis’ in school, the two girls had stated in their complaint.
Talking to India Today TV, the elder of the two siblings, Anvisha, expressed happiness over the fact that the injustice meted out against them has been undone.
