A government school principal in Rajasthan’s Pratapgarh district was suspended on Saturday for allegedly making objectionable comments against the CRPF personnel killed in the Pulwama terror attack, officials said.

Police have registered a case against the principal for “promoting enmity and hurting religious sentiments”.

People had blocked roads demanding action against the principal for his objectionable comments during the morning prayer,” local Station House Officer (SHO) Daulat Singh said. Taking swift action in the matter, director, secondary education, Nathmal Didel suspended him with immediate effect.
