The face of a school vice principal was blackened and his office ransacked by students' activists for punishing a student in the class, police said on Saturday.
The incident occurred in the Academy School in Udhna area when around 15 activists reportedly belonging to one of the factions of National Students Union of India (NSUI) barged into the school campus, heckled Dinesh Chauhan and blackened his face with ink, they said.
When contacted, Chauhan said NSUI activists had humiliated him after one of the students in class eleventh complained against him for being punished for misbehaviour.
"The student and his friends misbehaved in the class and the administration decided to make them sit at a distance from each other during the class examination a few days ago. The student objected to this and complained to the NSUI activists", Chauhan told PTI.
The student countered Chauhan's statement by saying "when I was seated in the last row of the class he approached me and said that I was seated in the last row as I was from the minority community."
The school authorities, who refused to be quoted, said the students were seated separately as they were mischievous.
