The UT’s director, school education (DSE), got a shocker during inspection of government schools in Dhanas on Thursday when he was told by some teachers that some students were hooked to drugs and they receive threats from them.

The director Rubinderjit Singh Brar contacted Chandigarh SSP Sukhchain Singh Gill and urged him to provide extra security outside Dhanas schools during the opening and closing hours. “Being a periphery area, there have been complaints about students taking drugs and teachers said they receive threats. The SSP has assured to depute cops from Friday,” Brar said.

The SSP said, “I have asked the Sarangpur SHO to meet the principals. A police van will be stationed outside the high school for 20 minutes at 2pm daily.”

Brar made the surprise visit to two high schools and a senior secondary school in Dhanas in the afternoon. On Sunday, Chandigarh MP Kirron Kher had got complaints against some teachers from students.

Principal of GMHS, Dhanas, Bharati Sharma refused to comment. A teacher of the same school, requesting anonymity, said, “It’s easy to blame; but only we know what we go through. We are scared of scolding students.”

Principal of the senior secondary school, Harmeet Kaur, said, “Some students of Class 12 are hooked to drugs and we have been working to reform them.” Sources said a former teacher of the school was threatened repeatedly as she was strict on discipline. Some students had smashed her car’s windowpane too.
