A real preceptor is he/she who always wears his/her teacher’s hat, at least when in school and boarding, and does what a teacher ought to do, lest he/she may spell doom for the taught and himself/herself as well.

Just this has  happened to Class VIII girl Debahuti Talukdar and her Principal without a teacher’s hat, Terrence Wharton. While the former had to commit suicide, the latter is mired in controversy.

According to an FIR lodged by the parents of the girl at Dispur police station, Bedahuti was a boarder of Mount Hermon School in Darjeeling where she had been forced to eat beef by the Principal. When she opposed, she was told by the Principal that beef eating was mandatory in the school boarding.

“When they have such a provision, this should be made each and every student known before taking admission,” said Debahuti’s mother, and added: “When my daughter opposed their move, the Principal and some other teachers framed some charges against her. She was accused of stealing the mobile set of a teacher. She was mentally tortured and her belongings were thrown out of the hostel. She came home and committed suicide on August 21 this year.”

Over the past few months, the police were carrying on the investigation, and at last they could arrest the Principal from Kolkata , and he was brought to Guwahati today.

In the police station itself, the parents and relatives of Debahuti attacked the principal. Meanwhile, the parents of the girl alleged that the erring principal is being given a VIP treatment at Dispur police station. “He has not been kept along with other accused in the police station,” they said.

  • This is the limit. Parents want their children to get education from a good reputation school. But this is what we get in return. If, it is mandatory to eat “beef”, why school authorities put up the same in their admission brochure or rule books? This is a clear case of children harassment. The police, however, must take strict actions, but they are giving the “principal” a celebrity treatment, as reported above. This is the second worst thing happened with the little girls family. What is the benefit of Police??? They act like “Zombies” in such incidents. Law should be equal for everyone. Police should make an clear impression that the girls family should get proper security as well as JUSTICE!!!

    Bhagwan us bachchi ki atma ko shanti de!!!!

  • Feel sorry for the poor girl..,
    Schools are supposed to teach the morals not the opposite way.., Feel sorrry for all other students,
    and their parents who thinks just about the kid’s marks rather than overall development.
    we should mandate the schools to respect each religion and not just their own religion.

  • Such type of coercion on innocent students is an attack on individual Dharmic rights.Why should anyone from any community be forced to eat something that the person objects to?
    Here it is clearly anti-Hindu and anti-DHARMIC because all DHARMIC philosophies viz. SANATANA Dharma,Sikh Dharma,Bauddha Dharma and Jain Dharma worship the sacred cow from immemorial times.
    Only Abrahamic religions like Christianism and Mohammedanism promote cow-killing and beef-eating.
    This principal has deliberately misused his administrative power and is directly responsible for the death of this Hindu student.
    This man should be punished without mercy so as to mete out justice to the victim’s family as an example to prevent such horrific incidents in the future and assure safety to students.

  • That principal who force the student to eat dead flesh of a cow should be punish by forcing him to eat a flesh of his own mother. He is a big demon.

  • I don’t understand how eating beef will become mandatory. Crazy school or it seems there is much more than just beef eating.

  • Thisbthe real face of secularism prevalent in india. The minorities torcher ans escapes punishment. Its high time , the majority asserts themselves to force the minorities to live upto the expectation of the majority–or leavevthe country. Our so called intellectuals are onebeyed jackels, they will call it a minor incident , & look at the otherbway.

  • Shoot the Bustard let him see the death of his on bloodline killed. Through him to the public they will take care of him. Unbelievable incident. Surprise Govt is still seating on the matter.

  • Please post the name and address of the School.
