A delegation led by the Bishop of Kurnool, Pula Anthony, met Deputy Chief Minister K.E. Krishnamurthy here on Tuesday and urged him to facilitate the withdrawal of the case against JMJ School management, which was accused of ill-treating a student who was on ‘Ayyappa Deeksha’.

The delegation tendered an apology to the parents of the boy and the government, saying that they would ensure such incidents did not recur. Meanwhile, the teacher who allegedly ill-treated the boy was withdrawn from the school.

Terming it as a “sad incident”, the delegation said it was not the intention of the school authorities to insult people from other religions. It promised to take action against the teacher and give orientation to other teachers on the sensitivity of religious matters.

District Collector Ch. Vijayamohan told the delegation that schools, irrespective of their affiliation, to follow secular norms and provide proper environment to children.

However, the Bishop insisted on dress code, saying parents and students should follow the school norms and take prior permission from the authorities to wear clothes other than the uniform.
